A Decade of Rare Forest Carnivore Monitoring: Lessons Learned

December 11, 2023 @ 7:00 PM 8:30 PM

Presented by Sarah Lamar

The Southwestern Crown of the Continent (SW Crown) is a 1.5 million acre, mostly forested landscape in the Rocky Mountains of western Montana. Swan Valley Connections (SVC) has been collaborating annually with various partners to monitor rare carnivores. This monitoring project was designed to provide a baseline of the current distribution of the focal species (Canada lynx, wolverine, and fisher) in the SW Crown and to allow for tracking changes in that distribution over time.

Sara Lamar (she/her) has worked with Swan Valley Connections (SVC) for nearly a decade. As the Education Director, Sara spends much of her time connecting people of all ages to the natural world through SVC’s education programs. Sara has worked on the carnivore monitoring project for seven field seasons.
