Former Staff and Students
Grant Bowers first got involved with the Monarch Lab through a freshman seminar about monarch biology and conservation that Karen Oberhauser was teaching in his first semester at the U of M. After that, he took another class with Karen in the spring and was thrilled at the chance to work in the Monarch Lab in the summer of 2005. Grant spent three years as an undergraduate research assistant, helping out with graduate students’ research and maintaining the lab until he graduated in May of 2008. After graduation, he became the Program Coordinator for Monarchs in the Classroom. Grant was excited to have the opportunity to work with teachers and provide the tools they need to teach science, inquiry, and conservation biology.
