Oak Monitoring Team

Alerting all citizen scientists, oak enthusiasts, and anyone with a smart phone!

Join the Oak Monitoring Team and help track re-oaking efforts in our County.

Team members visit publicly accessible planting sites and use a app with your mobile device to take GPS points and record observations about how the trees are doing. The observations are incorporated in real-time into an on-line         Oak Planting Map– everyone can view the data instantly!

To be part of the Team, you need the following tools:

  • A smart device with cell reception (phone or tablet)
  • Our data collector app downloaded on your device
  • The brief “How to” guide that walks you through using the app
  • Sturdy shoes (sometimes the plantings are surrounded by weeds) and your favorite outdoor adventure outfit
