(See attached information for full explanations)
Purpose: Our goal is to expose as many of our wildlife students as possible to the use of remote cameras in conducting wildlife research. Our goal is to have 40-80 students per year interact with the cameras. Some of these students will put forward research questions. All of the students will look at camera locations and set-up, analyze portions of the data, and construct reports based off the data. This exposure will be incredibly beneficial to our students in acquiring an important skill necessary to their professional development.
Additionally, as questions emerge for park and county managers we would be happy to work towards assisting/addressing these questions through adjusting our camera and study to be of benefit to the County.

Number of Cameras: We are proposing keeping four (4) cameras in current locations for historical and longitudinal data. The 4 cameras include: Ravine 3, Plot View, 4 Deer and Towers View (see map for locations). Additionally, we would like to be able to deploy three-four (3-4) additional cameras in differing locations as research questions develop from the students involved with the project. These cameras will all be marked with FRCC information and updated maps will be delivered to Larimer County.

Number of Park Entries and Vehicles: We are aware of the growing use and pressure on Front Range parks of Horestooth Mountain’s quality. As such we propose once (1) monthly access to the cameras via one (1) vehicle with 4-5 individuals per visit. An instructor/FRCC professional will always be with students during their access to the sites. Cameras will be accessed between 8am and 3pm (with an expected total time in park of 2-3 hours per visit). We are planning on the 2nd Monday of each month as the established check time.

We will equip the trapping sites with newer cameras (battery life) and larger data cards to reduce need for entry while still maintaining good efficacy. All cameras will be enclosed in locking boxes and will be keyed to the same key.

Monthly data reports will be submitted to the designated contact at the County.
