The student will work hands on with the Biologist/Natural Resource Manager to learn procedures for collecting, identifying, and preserving the various euarthropods found within the park. The participant can expect doing extensive research on the various euarthropods and there ecology. Secondarily, the participant will make an interpretive brochure indicating some of the common euarthorpods found within the park. This brochure will be used by interpretive staff and potentially given to visitors.
