Insects of Big Meadow Creek

  • Big Meadow Creek Alpacas 1021 McKeehan Road Troy, ID, 83871 United States (map)

Insects are among the most abundant animals found in our local ecosystem. Not only do they provide critical ecosystem services, but they are an important connection in food webs. Please join us and our entomologist friend Dr. Rob Clark for an afternoon learning about insect natural history and ecology at the Neuman Conservation Easement, home of Big Meadow Creek Alpacas in Troy, Idaho!

Learn insect collection techniques, identification how-tos, and learn about the fascinating ecology of the insect world. The program will consist of a short (20 minute) presentation followed by collecting and exploring the insect habitat along Big Meadow Creek, in the forested portion of the property and in the open meadow ecosystems.

The lecture and some materials are geared toward adult audiences, but all are welcome to spend some time in the sunshine learning and exploring.

This event is free and open to the public, but donations are welcome and greatly appreciated so we can continue to provide fun and educational programming like this around the region.
