Monarch butterflies may have all flown to Mexico for the winter, but what are all the other insects and spiders up to now? On Thursday, December 2nd from 6:30 until 7:30 p.m., join entomologist Charley Eiseman for a virtual tour of his yard on a winter day, in search of answers to this question. We’ll encounter some overwintering bugs, along with egg sacs, cocoons, nests, and other evidence of their presence.
For each of these clues we find, Charley will discuss who left it, their life cycle, and how they make it through the winter. There will be great photos, plus a preview of a cool 2022 calendar of Charley’s leaf-miner photos that’s available for purchase. Charley shares his fascination and enthusiasm for the world of insects in his programs as well as in his popular BugTracks blog and award-winning book, Tracks and Sign of Insects and Other Invertebrates: A Guide to North American Species. His scientific discoveries include many new species of insects, even several found in his own yard! This free Zoom event is co-sponsored by the Dickinson Memorial Library and FirstLight’s Northfield Mountain. To register email firstname.lastname@example.org .
