NAVARRE — The Panhandle Butterfly House seeks seasonal volunteers to serve as tour guides.

Butterfly house tours are usually scheduled Monday through Wednesday mornings. Volunteers work in teams, educating visitors on the biology and habitat of butterflies and their importance in the ecosystem. New volunteers work with seasoned tour guides to learn the ropes.

The 2018 tour guide training will take place at the Navarre Visitor's Center, 8543 Navarre Parkway in Navarre 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. March 23.

Applicants must be 16 years or older to apply. Register by March 19 by contacting Mary Salinas at maryd@santarosa.fl.gov.

The Panhandle Butterfly House is a nonprofit educational facility that brings visitors in close contact with live Florida butterflies in gardens that support them. Dedicated to educating visitors on the wonders of butterflies and the importance of protecting our pollinators, the Panhandle Butterfly House is located in Navarre Park on Santa Rosa Sound at the foot of the Navarre Bridge.
