About the Event
Prepare to immerse yourself in the world of pollinators (bugs and insects) with CT Agricultural Experiment Station’s Katherine Dugas at the Cheshire Pollinator Pathway on Wednesday, July 20.
Dugas and participants will explore the world of New England’s butterflies, bumblebees and other pollinators and insects. It's a deep dive into the life of bugs and insects, why they are so important to humans and life on earth. Dugas will offer insect identification tips, and lead members of the audience will take hand magnfiers to search for butterfly eggs and Monarch caterpillars and chrysalis cases.
Participants will learn what native plants host which insects, hear about the various jobs of bugs, and discover the daily life of a bumblebee and other insects in this free, hour-long outdoor program.
This program is for ages 6 to 60+.
