The Twilight World of Gray Foxes.

Camera traps are one of the best ways to see a gray fox, unless you’re willing to get up very early or stay up late. Gray foxes range from nocturnal to crepuscular, which means active during the night, dawn, or dusk. During the day they hide out in burrows or hollows, their small size easily allowing them to curl up and remain hidden. When they’re awake, they prey on small animals, birds, and insects, and love to snack on fruit when it’s in season.

Multi-Year Wildlife Camera Study Shows Worrying Trend.

Results of a multi-year study of activity in a wildlife corridor connecting the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park to the Cleveland National Forest are now available to the public for viewing. Laguna Greenbelt, Inc., a local environmental organization, planned and executed the study, using 21 cameras to examine wildlife movements in the Coast to Cleveland Wildlife Corridor (also called the Irvine Wildlife Corridor and Orange County Wildlife Corridor).

Where Napa's wild things are: Land Trust Wildlife Camera Project yields exciting findings.

The remote camera location that Land Trust volunteers Paula Peterson and Penny Proteau visit every few months may not be getting as many photos and data points as others in the non-profit’s Wildlife Picture Index project, but the story of this camera suggests at least one conclusion; an abundance of curious bears.

The purchase and deployment of the trail cameras is made possible by the BCCER’s new Adopt an Acre campaign, which has raised more than $22,000 in annual contributions from 36 donors to date. In addition to their research applications, trail camera photos of the wildlife that cross an adopted acre are shared with donors who adopt at the program’s higher tiers and also released in the BCCER newsletters and social media, allowing more people to connect with this unique ecosystem.

Who’s Knocking at Your Back Door in the Night? Probably Raccoons.

They live among us. Sometimes we find them in our garbage, or stealing some leftover pet food outside. They are, of course, raccoons. For some, they’re a common backyard pest that has to be dealt with, while others find their masked faces and strangely human hands to be charming. No matter what your opinion may be, you’ll probably end up seeing a raccoon in your yard sooner or later.

Study of wildlife aided by trail cameras.

Claremont, the eastern gateway to Los Angeles County and the western ingress to San Bernardino County, is a border town.

But the City of Trees sits astride another, less widely known but equally important boundary: the urban/wildland interface. The north Claremont foothills are a transition zone or “ecotone” between two ecosystems, coastal sage scrub and chaparral.
