Arthropod Adventures for Adults

9:00 am — 12:00 pm

Arthropod Adventures for Adults

AKA: Bug Camp for Grown Ups

   If you're like us, you get a little jealous of all those fun summer camps for kids! So this year, we've created a camp just for grown ups! 
  The arthropods are the most numerous and diverse of animal groups that includes insects, spiders, and their kin. “Arthropod Adventure for Adults” is a three Saturday introductory lab and field experience to the animals with many sets of jointed legs.
   Topics will include, but not be limited to insect/human relations, the unique insect body and how it works, insect behavior and ecology, and the relation of the arthropod groups to each other.  Each day, a field session will be more focused on a detailed investigation of a single, smaller group such as dragonflies, butterflies, beetles, grasshoppers, spiders, etc. 
   No insects or any other type of arthropod will be harmed or permanently collected in these sessions as the living organism as a part of nature will be stressed.  The last session will be focused on nocturnal insects. 
   Photography and journaling are encouraged. 

Sibley members $40.00, non-members $60.00.  Class size limited to 15.
