Photo Monitoring (PhotoMon) Posts have been placed throughout the Park in ecologically significant areas. Each post has a grooved, angled top. Anyone with a camera or smartphone can place their device on a post (landscape orientation, please), and they will all be able to take a photo of the same Pinery landscape. If everyone using the post attaches their photo to an e-mail to the address labelled on the post, park ecologists will have an extensive library of photos to monitor changes from week to week and year to year.
Watch out for PhotoMon posts during your visit, and contribute to the monitoring and protection of some of your favourite trails and beaches.
