Get Started!

The biggest task that the research team needs your help with is identifying animals in the network of 100+ camera traps spread across the reserve, using our Biodiversity Detective workflow. When new pictures are collected from the field, we also appreciate your help pre-screening the next season of images for wildlife presence/absence using the Animal or Not workflow. From time to time, individual scientists will have specific research questions that they also need your assistance to answer. These individual workflows will pop up below as new questions arise!

About Cedar Creek: Eyes on the Wild

Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve, located in east central Minnesota, is the birthplace of modern ecosystem ecology. Since the early 1940s, scientists have rigorously studied nature here at the intersection of three of North America's largest biomes: the Eastern deciduous forests, the Northern coniferous forests, and the Great Plains grasslands. Although much has been learned over the past 75+ years, most of our previous studies have focused on plants and soils. How and when mammals and birds use these diverse habitats, and what role they play in these ecosystems, remains unclear... until now!
