Doors Open: 1:30 pm

Cornell Cooperative Extension 840 Upper Front Street Binghamton, N&Y 13905

What goes there? Revealing the natural world with Trail Cameras. This talk will cover some of the basics behind trail cameras and how to successfully deploy them to capture local wildlife (not for “publication quality” photos, but for documentation of the natural world.) Victor Lamoureux who operates as trail steward at SUNY Broome will discuss their use as they were used for seven years with up to 6 cameras in the SUNY Broome Natural Areas (24/7/365). These shots form the basis of the talk along with other experiences using trail cameras in other settings.

The presentation will conclude with a question & answer period. Attendees are welcome to provide their own thoughts on their use and experiences, as well as any input for various features they found useful in their settings. Trail cameras have evolved over the years to include many new features that are unique to a variety of applications including high resolution, twilight color capabilities, and blue tooth capabilities to name a few. From the early days of 4 megapixal cameras, cameras today have the capabilities of 64 or greater at little additional cost. We will touch on some of these capabilities during our open discussions following Victor’s presentation. Trail cameras open up a whole new way of exploring the natural world, and we hope that you will take this opportunity to join us with your family to learn how these cameras can increase your understanding, and enjoyment of your fields, and forest.
