Eagle Hill Seminars for 2024!

Eagle Hill Entomology Seminar (May 6th – May 20th, 2024)

The course will explore topics including an overview of the insect orders, evolution, external morphology and internal anatomy, reproduction and mating strategies, social behavior, ecological services, and conservation. The course will also include some simple methods and resources for beginning the study of insect identification. Participants will be invited (as time allows) to share their own insect images for group consideration. No previous background in entomology is required for this course – only an interest in insects.
