The Volcan Mountain Foundation's newest addition to both Education and Research is VMF's Wildlife Imaging Team (WIT), a group of 10 volunteers who are helping to categorize and make sense of our vast number of remote camera viewing images. This group of 10 have been joined recently by Biology Professor Mike Mooring and his Conservation Biology students from Point Loma Nazarene University.
Mountain lions ruled the day at a special ‘Creatures of the Mountain’ presentation at the Julian Library on January 17th. The well-attended event drew about 80 life-long learners to listen to, biologist and tracker, Mike Puzzo discuss wildlife on Volcan Mountain and in the broader Southern/Baja California region.
Under the Oak Woodland Forest at VMF's Volcan Mountain Nature Center last month, VMF was visited by Le Petite Ecole, a French School in San Diego. The students learned about the local Oak Forest, drew pictures and planted Oaks in our Native Plant Nursery. The Native Plant Nursery was created with input from Sharyl Massey and Paul Cruz.
