Moose Day Volunteers Sought

Moose Research

A group of volunteers are joining biologists from Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Grand Teton National Park, Bridger-Teton National Forest and the National Elk Refuge Saturday to count moose in the region.  Called “Nature Mapping Jackson Hole”, this is a program by the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation that trains volunteers to become “citizen scientists” who can record wildlife observations that are verified and entered into a database. Those observations can then be used to guide wildlife management decisions and planning efforts in Teton County. Foundation Director Cory Hatch says residents in Teton County are asked to volunteer between 7:00 am and noon, and otherwise to be on the lookout for volunteers who may be driving slowly down road while looking for moose through binoculars. A Moose Day sign will be on their vehicle.
