AFC created the Wildlife Movement Education Project to provide interactive learning to students who can’t travel to our properties. Historically, our educational programs focus on bringing students to our properties and giving them hands-on learning opportunities. These programs are very successful, but we continue searching for a way to share conservation stewardship with those students who are unable to visit our properties. Our new project – the Wildlife Movement Educational Project – will do just that.
We installed remote wildlife cameras on AFC properties and areas we are studying along the Hahamongna ~ Tujunga Wildlife Corridor and upload the data gathered to share it with any and all interested teachers & students. For those students who have visited our properties, this project will provide continuing access their teachers can use to supplement any curriculum they choose to design. They may not see wildlife when they visit, but now will remotely on an ongoing basis.
Take a look at the curriculum resources we have so far in the column on the right. If you would like to schedule a field trip to an AFC property or learn more about our remote wildlife camera program, please contact our Field Administrator, Maggie Swomley: [email protected].
This project is a work in progress…stay tuned to see what’s next!
