See note below from Stephanie of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.  Respond directly to her if you have an interest:

>>The Iowa DNR is looking to hire three field technicians to do butterfly and vegetation surveys on some of the best Loess Hills remnant prairies.  We are specifically targeting two rare Hesperidae – Ottoe and Leonard’s Skippers.  The positions would run from June 8th through October 1 and would be perfect for a new or recent graduate especially if they have experience with identifying prairie butterflies and/or plants.  The job announcement is attached if you or anyone you know is interested.   Thanks and folks can get in touch with me directly with any questions.
