Using Trail Cameras to Study Wildlife Behavior
Place: SKLT Barn, 17 Matunuck Beach Rd.
Time: 6:00 pm
On Wednesday, October 23, SKLT will host Janet Pesaturo for a presentation on camera trapping.  Janet is a conservation biologist, certified tracker, and writer who travels around the country tracking and camera trapping everything from mouse to moose.   In 2018, she published her first book, 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 discuss smart camera placement so you, too, can capture photos and videos that reveal the secret habits of animals.   Bring a dish to share! Potluck supper begins at 6 p.m. followed by lecture at 7 p.m. at the SKLT Barn, 17 Matunuck Beach Rd. Books available for $20 (cash only please).
