Save or Squish? Citizen Science Presentation

August 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

1 person, 5 insects, a whole web of connections.

Join Regenerative Agriculture Coordinator KC Carr and embark on a scavenger hunt in your garden to find insects that you see every day and question their purpose in that space. Are they helpful or hurtful, good or dangerous? What role do they play in the larger ecosystem of your garden? Squish or save?

KC will discuss all of this as she hunts for 5 different garden insects that live in the Kitchen Garden on the National Colonial Farm. Together we can help our ecosystems, both at home and in our community, be healthier and happier by becoming more knowledgeable about the creatures living in them.

This is a virtual presentation with an optional citizen science volunteer project component. This event is free, but we ask that you preregister at the link.
