AZGFD Small Mammal Trapping – Buckeye
October 11, 2017 - October 18, 2017Free
Small Mammal Trapping with AZGFD (Buckeye)
The Arizona Game and Fish Dept. needs volunteers to help set small mammal traps (Shermans) near Buckeye. This is a great opportunity for interested volunteers to get involved with AZGFD projects. The first trapping event is October 11th-18th and the second is November 14th-21st. Volunteers are needed to help check traps in the morning in addition to processing rodents via data recording (no handling will be allowed).
Six-hundred traps need to be set across the study area. Last week, over 1000 animals were captured, representing 7 different species. Traps are opened an hour before sunrise and 2 hours after, so they are early mornings but the work is fun!
Some transportation to AZGFD Headquarters can be provided, but if you are using a personal vehicle, 4×4 capability is required.
