These field habitat trainings will be species specific versus covering a group of species unless there is overlap in their habitat requirements. Habitat training will last approximately 4 hours field time not including commute to and from the training site.
Are you ready to take the FWS test for QCB or LMS? Need help in preparing for either test? We offer about 2 hours of one-on-one training to prepare you to take the test. You will be assisted on identifying Quino from other similar looking Checkerspots. You will also be shown the other butterflies that are on the FWS list that could be seen on their test and helped on how to tell some of them apart. The same would be the Skipper test where you will be shown what to look at to recognize the LMS as compared to similar skippers. Like the Quino test you will shown the possible other butterflies that would be on the LMS test.
The primary field training will be looking at suitable habitat requested species. If any stage of the species is observed while doing habitat training, that would be a plus. The key for invertebrates is always understanding habitat requirements. If a request is to look at habitat for state or federally protected species any field personnel will have past any require state or federal tests first. If any personnel have not passed those tests we will not conduct habitat field training.
