(Two-day workshop)

Are you looking to take your trail camera success to the next level? Are there species you’ve always wanted to capture but they’ve eluded you time and time again? Are you thinking of investing in some trail cameras but need some guidance to make sure your investment is worthwhile?

The Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation is excited to announce this new workshop, specifically designed for local landowners looking to have all their camera trapping questions answered. Participants will spend two days with Smithsonian Wildlife Ecologist Joe Kolowski who has spent years using trail cameras to study wildlife around the globe.

The workshop will be a mix of field activities, demonstrations, and interactive lectures. Over the course of two full days the training will include:

  1. a review of current camera models, providing guidance for purchase decisions;
  2. practice in use and setup of a range of trail cameras in the field, including tips for optimal placement for a wide range of species and scenarios,
  3. highlights from local and international camera trapping research;
  4. local options for getting involved in camera trapping research; and get advice specific to their own properties and interests.

The Camera Trapping Tools for Landowners workshop is offered through the Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation as a professional training program.
