Presentation to Young Naturalist Club in Hawrelak Park

Volunteer opportunities

We have an ongoing need for volunteers. Volunteer work is a great opportunity to gain training and research experience, plus it is a lot of fun!

Scat collection

Get research experience while exploring Edmonton parks! This fieldwork is flexible and can fit perfectly into your schedule.


Get experience educating and interacting with the public. Experienced volunteers can assist us with presentations to people of all ages about coyotes and wildlife. Past presentation venues include the Valley Zoo, Hawrelak Park, Edmonton Master Naturalist Program, Friends of Kinnaird Ravine, and Strathcona County.

WISEST students radio tracking coyotes

Survey distribution

This is a form of outreach to find out what Edmontonians know and think about coyotes. It is a great way to get experience in the human dimensions of wildlife and to improve human-wildlife coexistence. We do not have an active survey at present.

Wildlife monitoring with remote cameras

In Spring 2018, we began placing remote cameras in parks and natural areas to monitor the presence of coyotes and other wildlife. Later, we will welcome assistant to maintain cameras and process the data they collect. These positions require commitments of a year or more and may be ideally suited to groups associated with the surrounding community.
