Pika Project Volunteer Training
Become a Pika Patroller and help us protect pikas by hiking to some of the most beautiful places in Colorado!
Pika surveys at long-term monitoring sites are the core of the Front Range Pika Project. FRPP community scientists—or Pika Patrollers—collect data on the presence of pikas and the characteristics of their habitat at nearly 200 locations in the scenic high country of Colorado. Our community scientists have been visiting some of these sites for a decade, which has provided critical data to land managers and researchers about the distribution and habitat use of pika. Through the dedication of FRPP volunteers, we can not only track how climate change is impacting pika, but find solutions to any potential threats.
