The S.B. area has a rich insect fauna. While many of these are beautiful, delightful creatures, like the monarch butterfly, many are also obnoxious: stinging, biting, eating our plants, buzzing in our faces, and seeming to have little redeeming value. Bring your curiosity and your burning bug questions. The evening should leave you with a better appreciation for 'the little things that run the world.'

If you have photos of insects that you would like identified, you may email them to Dr. Caterino in advance ( and he will try to include them in the presentation.

Presented by the S.B. Museum of Natural History. No reservations are required. Be sure to get to Dargan's early for a seat and order your favorite drink and treat.
