From insects and owls to mountain lions and coyotes, hundreds of wild animals rub shoulders with residents in Los Altos Hills.
A "trail camera" forum scheduled May 15 teaches how to document the creatures in your own backyard.
The 7 – 9 p.m. program, sponsored by Los Altos Hills Open Space Committee, is scheduled at the Los Altos Hills Town Hall, 26379 West Fremont Rd.
During the "Shooting Wildlife in Los Altos Hills" forum, participants will learn how to install a trail camera – a motion sensing camera device – to capture animal activity.
Charlie Knowles, a Los Altos Hills resident and founder of the Wildlife Conservation Network joins Dr. Rodney Jackson, founder of the Snow Leopard Conservancy, to share examples of their own trail camera work. They will also discuss equipment available on the market and techniques for deploying the cameras.
