ENTOMOLOGY FOR BEGINNERS
IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL
Fly into a world of insects with entomologist Clara Aus. In this hybrid course, participants will gain a basic understanding of entomology through weekly meetings. With topics ranging from insect anatomy to unique mating rituals and mutualistic interspecies relationships, this course will cover it all! Grow your knowledge of how insects evolved, how their bodies function and how to identify insects and take home new fun and weird insect facts to share with your family and friends.
For in-person participants, each class session will involve 1 hour of lecture and discussion as well as 15 minutes of exploration and observation in the Garden. Total instructional time over the course will be 6.25 hours.
For virtual participants, each class session will involve 1 hour of lecture and discussion only, but participants will be encouraged to go outside wherever they are and spend some time exploring and observing in their own garden/outdoor space on their own. Total instructional time over the course will be 5 hours.
