Bug Hunting (and Other Insects Too)!

Saturday, August 18, 2018
10:00am – 12:00pm

Fairfield County Extension Center

Want to see some fascinating insects in their natural environment? Want to learn which host plants they hang out on, and where they hide? Come on a bug hunt with Pamm Cooper on the Extension grounds in Bethel as she shows us how to find the hidden critters living amid our native and ornamental plants. Pamm will start the class with a PowerPoint presentation identifying some of the common insects we might see in the field, such as beetles, bees, and caterpillars. Then we will head out onto the grounds to “shake out” some of our friends from their cozy plant homes so we can take a closer look. Pamm, who is always on the lookout for insects in their native habitats, will also bring along some interesting live insect samples for the class to view.
