Introduction to Insects

May 27, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

- $5.00 – $10.00

Spend the afternoon with Education Associate Bridget Bradshaw learning about the bizarre and colorful world of our most diverse animal kin—the insects! The class will begin by covering basic insect biology and taxonomy at the peach house. The rest of the time will be spent catching and identifying insects from a smorgasbord of Clifton’s habitats like lush fields, leaf litter, and beaver ponds. Come ready to dig deep, get a bit dirty, and see eye to eye with the invertebrates who run the world. Please wear long pants and tall boots (like rain boots) and bring a water bottle! Nets, jars, and binoculars will be provided.

Cost: $10 ($5 for Friends of the Clifton Institute)

Age:  Adults and children ages 12 and up, accompanied by an adult.

Bring: Please bring a water bottle.
