What’s bugging you? In this two-part class and field trip taught by Naturalist Dan Lazar, we learn to recognize many of the region’s common insects, from ants and ant lions to house flies and butterflies. The class will investigate insect life cycles and ecology, covering the basics of insect anatomy and evolution of each order of insect found in the Southern Appalachians. Take a close-up look at one of the most common and colorful life forms of the Blue Ridge!
