Information
Tuesday morning, July 14th
    Jesus Esquival from the local USDA/ARS introduced us to the world of Entomology.  What do insect traps look like and how do they work?  What do scientists do with the collected specimens?  How do they preserve them?  These were but a few of the questions answered by the presentation.  Best of all, we got to pin some of the insects ourselves.  Several handouts and resources were also made available to us to support the information and activities taught.  These included: Two samples of pinned moths.
