Climate change and habitat loss may make the pikas' lives more difficult in the future. Getting involved with Cascades Pika Watch is a great way for citizen scientists to help biologists study and monitor pika populations in our region.

Join us for a crash course in learning how to identify pika, pika habitat and their distinctive calls. We will train you on everything you need to know to become a Pika Watch Citizen Scientist. After the training, you will be registered as an Oregon Zoo Community Conservation Volunteer and can sign up to do pika observations in the Columbia River Gorge. The sites we monitor are along public trails and are easily accessible.

If you sign up for the training, we request that you volunteer to monitor at least one pika site during the summer of 2019. In order to complete the hikes this summer, you will need access to binoculars, a GPS monitoring device (or smartphone) and the 10 essentials for safe hiking to participate.
