These groups will be required to commit to one session per month from June 2023 to May 2024. While previous monitoring skills are advantageous, they are not necessary. However, we do require volunteers to have a positive attitude, a keen interest in learning about native flora and fauna, and a genuine love for our Bighorn Sheep. Additional information about the program can be found here.

Location: North and south ends of Columbia Lake

  • Possession of a cellphone or tablet (this is mandatory)
  • General knowledge or a willingness to learn about local flora and fauna
