Nature Sightings: The Best of 2020

Red foxes, photographed by Russ Place.

Over the course of the past year we've received 673 submissions to our Nature Sightings page! This was a big increase over a typical year and is likely thanks to the renewed connections that people have been making with nature throughout this difficult period. It's another affirmation of the importance of local nature in our everyday lives.

Moths, weasels, raptors, turtles, woodpeckers, foxes, bears, and bugs: our list of species for which we have photos continues to grow and is now at 654! These photos and videos demonstrate the diversity of species that SVT and its conservation partners in our region support through our land conservation and stewardship efforts.  

We're grateful to everyone who shares their sightings throughout the seasons, and as we look forward to 2021, we're taking this time to share some of the best images from 2020.
