Sinlahekin Wildlife Area Ecological Monitoring Project

Ecological Integrity Monitoring in Washington State teaches people the techniques and methods to help rank the ecological health of select state wildlife area lands, and engage them in exploring the natural areas to record habitat features on data forms and using photo ID cards. Participants use digital cameras and Smart Phones to capture photos at established GPS points. Citizen scientists upload their data and photos to an online database where data are reviewed and complied with other participants in a state-wide long-term project effort to better understand and manage the state-owned wildlife areas of Washington.
