Candid Critters Project Comes to Henderson County

Do you ever wonder what lurks in the shadows when you’re not looking? Are you curious about the creatures that share our mountain lands? Find the answers and much more by checking out an outdoor camera trap from the main branch of the Henderson County Public Library. The library was selected by the North Carolina Candid Critters Project to be a lending library for camera kits containing all of the necessary equipment you will need to successfully participate in this project. Camera checkouts are free and distributed on a first come, first served basis.

North Carolina's Candid Critters is a statewide camera trap project run by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in collaboration with the NC Wildlife Resources Commission, NC State University, NC Museum of Natural Sciences, and the Smithsonian. This project focuses on surveying mammals across all 100 counties in North Carolina in order to identify what species are living where, providing information used to enhance management and conservation practices.
