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.

They live among us. Sometimes we find them in our garbage, or stealing some leftover pet food outside. They are, of course, raccoons.

No matter what your opinion may be, you’ll probably end up seeing a raccoon in your yard sooner or later.

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.
