Amazing Insects All Around Us
07/22/2017 @ 10:00 am to 12:00 pmFree
Come on a leisurely walk around the College Camp with Dr. Jeffrey Heilveil, Chair of the Biology Department at SUNY Oneonta and resident entomologist, and catch, observe and learn about many of the late summer insects that reside in Otsego County. Insects are fascinating creatures: some are vital to the foods we eat and flowers we love. Others are important food sources for other animals, or we are important food sources for them. Dr. Heilveil will talk about distinguishing characteristics, where to find the species, and some of the astounding life histories of local insects.
UPDATE, July 17: MEETING LOCATION HAS CHANGED. We will meet on the SUNY Oneonta campus at the faculty/staff parking lot located on Blodgett Drive, behind the Hunt Union and walk to the trail from there. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
NOTE: In case of bad weather, there will be an indoor presentation in the Science I building on campus.
