While we conduct regular water quality monitoring, wildlife monitoring is a new area of focus for our department this year. Seeing what wildlife interacts with Ackerman Creek is important. It shows us if it’s suitable habitat for animals as well as fish.
In November we set up our field camera for one week at a time and began saving any of the photos of various animals we’ve seen. As you can see from the picture above, we’ve captured coyotes and more. Enjoy a look at our field camera pics below. You will see deer, raccoons, various birds and even a bobcat! We’re continuing to keep the camera set up through the spring as the seasons change to see what else we might find. Check back here for an update!
