Readers write - Searching for volunteer botanists.

To Friends of Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park:

BC Parks is looking for a few keen volunteer botanists!!
Next Friday July 6, a Conservation Specialist and a Range Officer will visit Kalamalka Park to train Rangers on methods for setting up and conducting Long Term Ecological Monitoring (LTEM) in the grasslands of Kal.  LTEM plots track change over time in plant communities, and help identify species at risk. 
This could be a wonderful opportunity for the right Volunteer(s) – we are looking for Volunteers who fit the following criteria:
-  enthused and informed botanists
- willing to do technical and thorough work (identifying different plants and grasses in the plots is tricky!). 
-  able to attend the training July 6
Interested people should contact me before Thursday July 5.
