Event description

Description

Our annual Community Forum will take place on Sunday, April 14th, from 1 to 4pm at the Old VFW Hall in Cold Spring. This year's forum, Wildlife Through the Hidden Lens, will focus on how scientists are using camera trapping technology to better understand our natural world and how local residents can use technology to discover wildlife in their own backyards.

Join us to learn about:

  • The secret lives of regional wildlife through stunning photography and video footage
  • Ongoing scientific studies on public conserved lands that are using camera traps to track rarely-spotted animals like the Golden Eagle and Fisher
  • How you can use technology to capture wildlife in your own backyard and contribute to scientific research


Featured Speakers:

Dr. Ed McGowan

Director, Trailside Museums & Zoo at Bear Mountain State Park


Dr. Scott LaPoint

Research Scientist, Black Rock Forest


Dr. Brent Boscarino

Invasive Species Citizen Science Program Coordinator, Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM)


The forum is free for the community, but we suggest a donation of $10, which can be made through Eventbrite or at the door. Advance registration is required.
