Time: 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Did you get inspired by SERC’s evening lecture on river otters? Are you interested in learning more about using game cameras to look at the wildlife around you at night? Join SERC education specialist Karen McDonald for a two-hour introductory workshop on how to use game cameras for tracking some of the common wildlife found in and around your home. A game camera is NOT required to attend! We’ll go over the features of what makes a good game camera and how to set them up.

For a sneak peek, watch the video above to see some of Karen’s game camera footage of SERC’s river otters. Video edited by SERC volunteer Greg Izzi.

Cost: $25. All funds go to support the SERC Education program.
