Oregon is home to thousands of species of insects with many different ecological roles. This program will focus on learning to identify the major insect groups in western Oregon. The evening program lead be insect enthusiast Gail Gredler will look at the identifying characteristics of each of the major groups. We will also cover the roles each play in our environment.
