Environmental Monitoring with Digital Apps

By Katie Bakken

With the support of Alberta Environment and Parks, a digital app has been developed to collect data about the status of trees in Fish Creek that have been wrapped to deter beaver activity.  The data collected helps the Friends and AEP staff to know what trees are at risk of girdling from tight wire and need rewrapping, as well as what trees might be candidates for unwrapping. 

The Friends of Fish Creek are seeking to recruit volunteers to get trained to use their own digital devices in the field to enter data about trees in the park.  The data collected helps the Friends and Alberta Environment and Parks to know when wire needs to be replaced (is it too tight, causing the tree to risk being girdled?), when it could come off, and when wire needs to be installed.
