Snapshot Wisconsin: Let’s discover our wildlife together!

Snapshot Wisconsin is a citizen-science effort by Wisconsin DNR, University of Wisconsin and UW-Extension to monitor wildlife populations using trail cameras. Volunteers are currently being accepted in the following counties: Ashland, Bayfield, Clark, Crawford, Dane Dodge, Douglas, Grant, Iowa, Iron, Jackson, Manitowoc, Marathon, Marinette, Oneida, Price, Racine, Richland, Rusk, Sauk, Sawyer, St. Croix, Taylor, Vernon, Vilas and Waupaca.

Volunteers should have access to at least 10 acres of contiguous private land, and agree to maintain a trail camera there for at least one year. Training and supplies provided, no prior experience required, basic computer and internet skills are helpful. To signup please visit dnr.wi.gov, Keyword Snapshot Wisconsin and click the “Apply Now” button.

The wildlife photos are categorized by the public using our crowd-sourcing site (www.snapshotwisconsin.org) and used to monitor wildlife more thoroughly than is currently possible. Learn more about Snapshot Wisconsin via our website and e-newsletter!
