Become a Wildlife Monitor through our new Citizen Science Program! Help gather data on wildlife species within the Park System to assist in making sure that common species remain common and that rare, threatened, and endangered species are protected. This data will also help our staff plan and prioritize their land management and habitat restoration efforts. Monitors are trained to use protocols to gather and record data in the field. For some projects, monitors may work independently or with trained personnel. For any project, attendance at a training program is required and all equipment will be provided. No prior experience required. Questions? Contact our Conservation Biologist at parks@waukeshacounty.gov.
