New Volunteer Training Date for the Cascade Butterfly Project

The Cascades Butterfly Project needs you!

Get out into the beautiful mountains of North Cascades National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, and Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and help wildlife biologists identify and count alpine butterflies.

Mark your calendars for volunteer training:

When: Saturday, August 13th - 9am to 3pm
Where: Paradise Jackson Visitor Center

Participants will learn more about the project and the ecology of Cascades butterflies. The trainings will have two components: an hour-long classroom session, followed by a longer afternoon field excursion where we will practice field ID and scientific research protocols in subalpine meadows.

Volunteer training is highly recommended, but not mandatory for participation in the project.
