"Citizen Scientist" wildlife track and sign monitoring project: This program includes community volunteers who are trained as "citizen scientists" who gather scientifically valid data about wildlife connectivity in New Mexico. This program has been running for years and has trained dozens of volunteers who have gathered 12 months worth of valid data.
