Learn about Alaska’s insects and their relatives - from our beautiful butterflies and dragonflies to our less-loved mosquitoes and spiders. Through field, forest and pond, under rocks, in flowers and everywhere else, we’ll collect (catch and release some, keep others to build a collection of preserved specimens campers can take home) and study these fascinating many-legged tiny animals.
Session I taught by Derek Sikes, UAMN Curator of Insects, and Melissa Sikes, Natural Resource Education Specialist at the Fairbanks Soil and Water Conservation
Session II taught by Taylor Kane, UAF Ph.D student.
