Over the course of the summer, Alderleaf Wilderness College set up a pair of wildlife monitoring trail cameras in two locations on the school's property. This was part of a longer term wildlife study on the property. The cameras were placed after utilizing wildlife tracking techniques to locate the best sites for placement. We captured footage of cougars, bears, coyotes, bobcats and more.
Such a project gives an intimate view into the lives of the many life forms that include Alderleaf as part of their home. The property is also utilized for various classes, including throughout the summer time. Humans and wildlife often use the same trails, sometimes within hours of each other. This was the case, for example, with the summer camp students and the young black bear.
