Event Description: 

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Lincoln, MA Copyright Linda GraetzCome to this fun beginner’s class on bug identification led by Drumlin Farm educator and insect enthusiast, Linda Graetz. Encompassing more than a million species, insects are the largest group of animals on earth, and they are absolutely essential to the health and sustainability of our environment. Insects are also beautiful, fascinating, and fun to watch. Before venturing out on our walk, we'll get an introduction to key insect groups and how to identify them. Then we’ll head into the park to find them: in fields, in the woods, on plants, on trees, under rocks, or just flying by.

Wear sunscreen, bug repellant, long pants and close-toed shoes. Please bring your own water. NOTE: we will walk on paths and service roads, however ticks and poison ivy may be present. Email Sonja to express interest and receive the materials before the program.
