Training: Insect Identification and Monarch Larvae Monitoring Introduction

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, National Park Service

Monarch
A monarch butterfly rests in a liatris flower.

Join entomologist Jessica Miller as she teaches us about insect biology, with a cinematic twist! Jessica will use movie references as tools to teach entomology (the study of insects) and to dispel some pervasive insect myths. We will also do a brief introduction to the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project and how volunteers can get involved in this community science project. No prior experience with insects is needed to participate, but attending this training is an excellent way to get started! Monitoring will begin in early June.
