Citizen Science Day: Explore your data!
April 14, 2018, 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Explore Your Data Day on Citizen Science Day!
Calling our Sky Island Alliance Wildlife Stewards AKA;“Trackers” & “Wildlife Camera monitors”.
Join us on Citizen Science Day, Saturday, April 14th, 9 am to 12 noon to Explore Your Data!
Have you been wanting to take your involvement in our Wildlife Linkage Program a step further and help us determine different ways of presenting and analyzing your wildlife tracking and camera data? We heard this interest at our March 1st Wildlife Stewards Meet-Up, so now is your chance!
Our goals are: 1) To assist land managers, our partners, and communities understand the wildlife value of these Sky Island “connections” and help guide their land management for conservation benefit of these critical landscape linkages, and 2) (New 2018) Understand what factors (e.g. human disturbance and water) influence the value of these linkages to wildlife. Please RSVP in the link below and come Saturday, April 14, 2018 to the SIA offices downtown Tucson at 406 S. 4th Ave to explore your data. Limit 12 people! (We may do this again depending on the interest, so those not getting in can be first served at our next SIA Explore Your Data Day).
Here is the scoop:
- Bring your laptop with MS Excel, we will share copies of our tracking and wildlife photo archive from our active wildlife monitoring sites (contact us if you want to borrow one laptop here or plan to work with a friend who is bringing their laptop).
- We will review how we have presented wildlife data in our recent Davidson Canyon report to Pima County
- We will use MS Excel and step you through data graphing and plots
- You will work on your own or in teams and try out different ways of presenting and analyzing your data
- We will move around the group and help you with the program and data exploration
- Together we will review what groups have come up with and assess what would work best for end of the year annual reports for linkage monitoring sites
- Coffee and treats provided!
