Field Botanists Wanted!

CNHP is looking for qualified volunteer field botanists to assist with a project in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. All travel expenses will be paid, including per diem. Transportation is provided. Work will be in early August, for approximately 10 days.

The project involves sampling vegetation at high elevation monitoring sites in the Park. Work involves backcountry travel and volunteers must be willing to backpack. This research is part of the GLORIA project, a global observation network for the comparative study of climate change impacts on alpine biodiversity. Data from the project will be used to examine climate-induced changes of vegetation cover, species composition, and species migration. For more details, contact Bernadette Kuhn or Joe Stevens.
