February 24, 2018 | Jackson Hole Moose Day
The tenth annual Moose Day Jackson Hole survey will be conducted on Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. in collaboration with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Volunteers from trained Nature Mapping Citizen Scientists, Wyoming Game and Fish Department, and Bridger-Teton National Forest personnel will take part.
Every year since 2009 on a Saturday morning in late February, Jackson Hole Nature Mappers partner with Wyoming Game and Fish to survey moose in Teton County. Teams of two or more are assigned to drive, ski, or snowshoe a set territory and Nature Map moose sex, age, location, and the time of spotting.
Nature Mappers contribute important sightings in developed and rural areas not surveyed by professional game biologists who concentrate on public lands. Those who are interested in Moose Day 2018 can email volunteer coordinator Frances Clark at email@example.com.
