Using Trail Cameras to Study Wildlife Behavior
with Janet Pesaturo
Join conservation biologist and author, Janet Pesaturo, for a presentation on “camera trapping.” Janet is a certified tracker who travels around the country tracking and camera trapping everything from mouse to moose. In 2018, her first book was published: Camera Trapping Guide: Tracks, Sign and Behavior of Eastern Wildlife. This one-hour talk followed by book sale and signing, will introduce trail cameras – how they work and how to set them up – and then discuss smart camera placement so that you too can capture photos and videos that reveal the secret habits of animals. Signed books will be available for sale.
