Day: Insects Alive at Five Rivers
DELMAR — Five Rivers Environmental Education center will host “Insects Alive,” a free, family program on Saturday, Sept. 17 at 10 a.m.
Late summer and early autumn are excellent for observing insects. Join us as we explore the fields for grasshoppers, beetles, mantids and more. Classify insects into families by looking at their identifying features, and discover the wonderful adaptations each has to aid its survival.
We’ll be using sweep nets to collect insects from meadows near the visitor center. We’ll identify the creatures we find and use hand-lenses and bug boxes to take a closer look. At the end of the program, the insects will be released back into the areas where they were collected.
For more details, call 475-0291 or visit www.dec.ny.gov/education/1835.html.
Due to construction, visitors are asked to follow the posted signs directing them to designated parking areas.
Five Rivers is located at 56 Game Road in Delmar.
