Arizona 2011

I spent a bit over a week at the Southwestern Research Station (SWRS) in Portal, Arizona. The station is run by the American Museum of Natural History. I was participating in the Lepidoptera Course, studying moths and butterflies and caterpillars with some of the best researchers in the field. It was an amazing opportunity, and I learned so much!
