Snapshot in the Classroom

Attention Trail Camera Hosts: The Snapshot Wisconsin photo processing system is currently offline due to a system-wide issue. We expect the system to be available again by Monday morning, during the outage there may be no access to the MySnapshot system or photo upload process.

Snapshot Wisconsin is a great way to get students of all ages outdoors and learning about local wildlife! The project offers a unique opportunity to integrate science and technology into your classroom or nature center.
