Beyond Birding: The Fun and Importance of ‘Bugwatching’ by Eric Eaton.
If birds are everywhere, insects are everywhere-er-er. In this age of insect decline, it is more urgent than ever to make observations of insects, share them with scientists, and act to reduce the impacts causing a reduction in biodiversity. Doing so can be challenging, but highly educational, entertaining, and even social. Come along for a fascinating primer on what it means to be a “bugwatcher.”
Eric R. Eaton is author of Insectpedia: A Brief Compendium of Insect Lore, and Wasps: The Astonishing Diversity of a Misunderstood Insect, both from Princeton University Press. He is also lead author of the Kaufman Field Guide to Insects of North America, and co-author of Insects Did It First, with Gregory S. Paulson.
Programs will not be live-streamed this year, but you can see recordings after the live program on Youtube.
