The San Francisco Parks Trust is looking for volunteers to help build and maintain habitat for swallowtail butterflies that call Golden Gate Park their home. Volunteers will meet at Stow Lake Boathouse for this ongoing opportunity that gathers on the second Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

If you are interested in volunteering, please RSVP by the Wednesday before the volunteer work day to reserve a space. Bring a bagged lunch and water. Wear closed toe shoes and dress in layers in case the weather has a quick change. The necessary tools and equipment for this project will be provided. Volunteers should be 10 years or older.

Mark your calendar for the following dates to volunteer:

• July 9, 2011
• August 13, 2011
• September 10, 2011
• October 8, 2011
• November 12, 2011
