A state-wide wildlife study is in need of local surveyors.

The Wildlife Guardians Project aims to identify wildlife crossing hotspots on New Jersey roadways for the possible creation of corridors to assist in their movement, like underground tunnels to funnel amphibian migrations or overpasses for deer. To do that, the collaborative effort among Montclair State University representatives and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection requires local volunteers or volunteer groups to "adopt" a transect of road to inspect three times a week through May.
