The Arboretum has sent this information about an interesting summer opportunity.
Summer field workers, lab assistants, and volunteers are needed for a butterfly study. This involves a stipend!! Please read the attachment for details.
Dale Halbritter, a PhD student in Entomology from the University of Florida is investigating the ecology and biogeography of two unique mountain butterflies in Arizona. He will be traveling to the Flagstaff area on July 12th and is in need of some help with his field work though mid August. He will be staying most nights at the Merriam-Powell Research Station near The Arboretum and will have some lab space set up there.
He would like to recruit at least two volunteers: 1 to accompany him in the field and help collect butterflies, and 1 to take care of the captive butterflies in the lab while he is away in the field. He has some small cash stipends for volunteers.
Attached is the flyer! If you are interested, please email Dale at firstname.lastname@example.org
