Somehow wouldn’t you think the Ant Course 2011 at South Western Research Station in Portal, AZ would be a a bit more serious than this?
The information for the 2012 Ant Course is already up at the California Academy of Sciences website. It will be 2012 August 6-16, at the Makerere University Biological Field Station in Kibale Forest, Uganda. Time to start working on your passport. 🙂
Are any of you signed up for the 2011 Ant Course? It is going to be held at the American Museum of Natural History’s Southwestern Research Station near Portal, Arizona this year, or at least it was supposed to be. You see, there is a big fire burning in southeastern Arizona right now. They had to evacuate the station over the weekend.
Are you making resolutions and setting goals for the New Year? Thinking of polishing up your ant taxonomy skills? You might want to consider adding the California Academy of Science’s Ant Course 2011. You can bet it is on my wish list!
This year the ant course is being held August 4 – 14, 2011 at the Southwestern Research Station in Portal, AZ, USA.
California Academy of Sciences offers an ant course every year in different locations. According to the website, it is open to all interested individuals. Because space is limited to 30 students, however, priority given to students with who need the course for their research. I wonder if ant bloggers are invited to hang out? 🙂
You’ll need to make up your mind by April 1, 2011, which is the application deadline.
