**Butterfly Magic Volunteers. We currently are looking for four or five dedicated volunteers interested in working in Butterfly Magic through the end of May. We provide training and education materials and want you to commit to typically volunteering for one shift each week. Shifts run 9:15-12:30 or 12:15 to 3:30. We are open seven days a week. Volunteers are expected to become members and in addition receive extra education opportunities. You will greet visitors, introduce them to the exhibit, and see that they exit safely without any hitch-hiking butterflies. In addition, if you are interested, you are welcome to get involved in plant care and other aspects of running the butterfly exhibit. If interested, please contact Marianne Rothenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 326-9686 ext 24.
