If you like bugs, science, and the outdoors, we have the perfect citizen science project for you! We are seeking volunteers to help carry out a tree canopy survey for Emerald Ash Borers that may be present in the forests of Jug Bay. Volunteers will receive a full field training in field methods and insect identification and are expected to volunteer once per month on a Friday or Saturday from April to August. A typical field day would last approximately four hours and includes off trail treks to four canopy traps to gather samples, followed by a return to the lab to sort the sample into broad insect Order categories. Ages: 18 years and older. Free. Current health guidelines and registration is required.
