Mid-June is the peak of insect emergence, and biologist Mark Ferguson and Vermont State Game Warden Kelly Price will lead the group in insect observation using a variety of trapping methods. In addition to collecting and observing insects on-site, Ferguson and Price will bring some of their collections for people to see. Participants should bring a flashlight, tick protection and be dressed appropriately for the field.
Ferguson works for Vermont Fish & Wildlife on the conservation of Vermont’s rare, threatened and endangered insect species and is a knowledgeable expert on the fun and fascinating world of bugs. Warden Price has travelled the world to observe and collect insects and has two species of insects named after him.
