Please visit the new page to apply.
Volunteers will assist the park's Biologist in collecting data regarding the Spotted Lanternfly (SLF), Lycorma delicatula, including but not limited to: quantity, life-cycle stage, location, etc. Volunteers will be assigned to monitor specific SLF traps on (at minimum) a weekly basis. Volunteers will be expected to hike to their assigned trap, follow given directions for emptying the traps, record SLF data, submit data via a Microsoft Form, and submit their physical data sheets to the park's Biologist. Each trap must be emptied twice a week. Each volunteer will be assigned to trap locations based on availability, interest, and the total number of volunteers involved in the project.
Volunteers may also assist with the installation, maintenance, and removal of circle traps dependent on interest and availability. Special procedures will be in place to minimize potential contact with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
