Marmot Survey Areas

Shown are the survey trips, with names of clusters to be surveyed on each trip, along with the number of days (including the training day) that each survey trip is expected to take and the relative difficulty of the trip. An overview of all the clusters can be found on the KML file map. This is a Google earth map and you must have Google Earth loaded on your computer for this to work.

Survey Trip Comparison
A topographic map of each of the survey trips can be accessed by clicking on the Survey Trip in the first column. Clusters in the core of the program will be surveyed annually, sometimes more than once per year. Others will be surveyed occasionally as time and personnel permit. Some areas can be surveyed via day hikes or from a front country campground. These surveys may take fewer than 5 days and it may be possible to survey these areas over two or more weekends. Two trips are on lands administered by Olympic National Forest.
