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. 🙂

Happy 2011!

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.

If you are unsure, take a look at the instructor list from last year. Wow!
