Volunteer Opportunity

Studying Roosting and Foraging Site Selection in Ponderosa Pine Forests of Central Arizona

Assist U.S. Forest Service and Arizona State University biologists with mist-netting and radiotracking forest-dwelling bats to roost sites and foraging areas from late May through early August, 1996. Three bat species are being studied: Arizona myotis, pallid bats, and big brown bats. Volunteers will be working in ponderosa pine habitats of the Tonto National Forest near Payson, Arizona, approximately two hours north of Phoenix.

Volunteers should be able to work during night or day shifts for long hours in relatively rugged terrain. Housing, vehicles, and a per diem are provided.
