Early Fall Insect Search in Vineyard Field
Program Leader: Paul King III, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator
While temperatures are still warm enough, many bugs can still be seen before they hibernate for the winter. With habitats like grasses, trees, ponds, and fallen logs Vineyard Field behind the museum is an excellent place to find a great diversity of bugs. Join Paul on this field exploration to learn all about the insects and other arthropods you can find in it this time of year. Learn how to distinguish centipedes and millipedes, beetles and bugs, and countless other native creepy crawlies! This program is for all ages.
There is a $5 fee for Adults and $3 fee for children for this program. Members are free.
