I have new openings as of September 28, 2015!
Please join me in the forests of northeast Washington to install deer exclosures as part of a research study investigating the impacts of recolonizing wolves on deer herbivory. Volunteers may also have the opportunity to install trail cameras, review camera footage, and more.
Volunteers should be comfortable working long days, hiking cross-country across uneven terrain for about 0.5 mile at any given time, and carrying large, awkward fencing supplies. We will be moving rolls of fencing and cutting wire. Time commitment is flexible. Please let me know your availability between Oct 3-24. Plant identification is a plus, but not required – please indicate if you feel comfortable identifying plants of northeast WA to species-level. Safety is a priority – your safety in the field is the number 1 priority. Please indicate if you have CPR and/or First Aid training.
Volunteers must provide their own transportation to the site near Republic, Washington. At that point, a shared vehicle will be used to access the survey sites. Volunteers are responsible for their own food. We will be camping each night. Please look at the weather and bring appropriate gear for “car” camping. We will not be hiking in to any campsites.
Time commitment is flexible, come for 1 day, multiple days, or weeks. Please let me know your availability between Oct 3-24.
Text or call me at nine seven zero – 443 – seven eight four one. Email apryle …at… uw [dot]edu
Thanks for your interest!
