Training for Monitoring
In-person Trainings - Already adopted a catchment? Register for a training here!
Training is essential to collecting quality data that can be used to estimate trends in amphibian populations. We offer several in-person trainings around Wyoming each spring. Please consult our training schedule to find an in-person training near you.
Trainings last for approximately four hours: half indoors to go over instructions and materials, half in the field practicing catching and identification. Trainings that don't receive enrollment of more than four will be cancelled and participants notified.
GPS Unit Training
Not sure how to use a GPS unit but need to use one at your catchment? Check out this presentation by Joe Ceradini (Wyoming Natural Diversity Database), which covers how to use a few of the most common GPS units.
