About This Project
Wesselman Woods is home to a 200-acre urban old-growth forest that has been protected from timber harvest and human settlement. This unique forest has so much research potential but has yet to be taken advantage of. By starting up a camera trap project, we can gather data to understand how wildlife utilize this forest. The long term goal is to turn this into a citizen science project where the public can help tag wildlife photos and encourage human-wildlife coexistence.
