Citizen Science
In a program launched in 2010, teams of volunteers hike to locations within Olympic National Park to record up-to-date information about the declining number of Olympic marmots within the park.

This is timely information that is vital to our understanding of this endemic mammal and its future. Most of the sites would not be visited without the help of volunteers. In 2015, over 80 volunteers recorded the status of marmot populations throughout the park.

Research, Articles and Links
