NatureMapping Progressive Workshops
Moving from activities to field research. NatureMapping is a tool for students and citizens to use to help
determine a healthy future for fish and wildlife through the use of sound scientific techniques. Classroom and field work
will include the use of maps, wildlife identification tips, habitat coding, building a search image, tracking and data collection
NatureMapping for Educators
This workshop will provide educators with the skills needed to aid learners in the NatureMapping process.
The basic data collection and monitoring techniques of NatureMapping are all included, plus activities
to engage learners in the process. This two-day workshop also includes time spent in the field applying
the NatureMapping process. It is not open to non-educators. Clock hours available.
Data Collection and Monitoring: 2-day workshop
This workshop is for citizens interested in using the NatureMapping process to keep track of wildlife
in their backyard, local parks and forests, or any other natural area. This hands-on environmental learning
workshop helps people take the next step after learning to enjoy wildlife.
How to ask your scientific Question: Project Design: 1-day workshop
An overview of different ways to collect meaningful data will be covered
after all participants discuss their ideas. Participants begin with a scientific question and design their project.
How to coduct a bioblitz will be discussed.
Project Facilitation & Technology
These workshops are conducted before and during research projects. The
use of technology (e.g., full-use of the NatureMapping spreadsheet, data
analysis and graphs; NatureTracker software data query; GPS, etc.) are
full-day workshops. A repeat of earlier workshops may be conducted with
specific focus for skills needed on the project. For example, animal
tracks covered in Data Collection and Monitoring may be expanded to
actual tracking wildlife in the field.
