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.
