    Name: Wallowa Land Trust Outing: All About Insects
    Date: July 8, 2017
    Time: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT
    Event Description:
    Are you horrified by bugs?  Thrilled and fascinated?  All of the above? 

    Well, Wallowa Land Trust has a special outing just for you!  This coming Saturday 7/8 we are lucky enough to have TWO entomologists lead us on a wee adventure into the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest (Sled Springs) to learn all about insects and how they play a role in forest ecology.  It is going to be fascinating, interesting and fun.  And you won’t have to eat a single bug unless you want to. 
     
    Please let me know if you would like to join us so we can get a head count.  Please forward this email to anyone you think might be interested in joining us.
    We’ll meet at the Land Trust office at 9AM. 

     
    FUN FACTS:
    • Butterflies taste with their feet
    • Dragonflies can travel up to 60 mph
    • The praying mantis is the only insect that can turn its head
    • There are more insects in one square mile of rural land than there are human beings in the world
    Join entomologists Diane Knox and Jim Hansen for a walk on the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest to learn about insects! Come learn about the vital role these interesting creatures play in local ecosystems while enjoying the beautiful forest scenery.
