Clark’s Nutcracker Citizen Science Project

In 2017, the Clark’s Nutcracker Project engaged 289 total participants in data collection, including 236 students of five organizations (NOLS, Teton Science Schools, the Community School, Wyoming Catholic College, Powell High School, and 2 independent citizens). To reach this audience, we gave public presentations and dozens of trainings to over 70 wilderness instructors representing 50 backcountry expeditions. In total, we completed 114 scientific surveys to document Clark’s nutcracker presence and whitebark pine stand conditions across four remote mountain ranges.
