The AZ Daily Star published a feature story about our partnership with Manzanita Elementary School on October 1, 2017. We are excited these students and teachers are getting recognition for their contribution to our Remote Wildlife Camera Monitoring Project and that this project is growing beyond our dreams. Lead teachers Jennifer DeBenedetti and Charlotte Ackerman have even developed a four-week curriculum based around the project called Critter Cams for Kids that provides a deeper foundation of knowledge about wildlife linkages and habitat fragmentation.

You can also check out a wonderful YouTube video about the project and the curriculum that was developed to support the Critter Cams below.Tags: citizen scientists, Manzanita Elementary School, Oracle Road wildlife crossings, wildlife cameras, wildlife crossings, wildlife linkages
