Volunteer Wildlife Monitoring Program


VWMP Information

The Volunteer Wildlife Monitoring Program (VWMP) is for enthusiastic and sharp-eyed, sharp-eared volunteers who have a passion for wildlife and its conservation. With more than 800 species in our state, the wildlife staff can't possibly keep track of all these critters in every corner of the state. We need volunteers that are willing and interested in collecting data on two important and sensitive groups of wildlife.

This database is for volunteers to enter data collected as part of the following surveys:
Bald Eagle Nest Monitoring Survey
Restored Species Nest Monitoring: Peregrine Falcon and Osprey
Frog and Toad Call Survey
