This class will provide an introduction on how to collect, identify, and preserve insects. The first part of the course will be an outdoor (weather permitting) opportunity to view and collect insects by several methods outside the building. This will involve a walk of 300 - 500 feet from the building. Afterwards, we will return indoors for a presentation on insect collections and identifying insects of all shapes and sizes. This will include hands-on work at pinning and labelling collected insects. Attendees are also welcome to bring their own insects for pinning. All participants will receive an insect collection box, set of pins, and will have the opportunity to leave the class with 10-20 pinned insects. 


Thus class is suitable for adults and youth 10 & older.

Fee: $20
