Discovering the Wonderful World of Insects using Recycled Materials

April 10, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Have you ever wondered what insects are crawling around your backyard? Join us to start your insect collection journey!

Learn how to collect and identify the insects that live all around us. Reuse your Starbucks cup to capture beetles or use leftover food to see what insects it attracts. Your house already contains many of the supplies you need to start your insect collection journey. This program will allow people of all ages and of any skill level to leave with a better knowledge of the insects in their own backyards.

This workshop is open to adults, and children age 8 and over. Children must be accompanied by an adult and all participants must register in advance. In case of rain, the event will be postponed to April 23rd and participants will be notified via email. Plan to keep both dates open!

If you have any difficulty with the registration process, please let us know so we can help! Contact us at info@njsoc.org.

The Friends of the New Jersey School of Conservation is a U.S. tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. When NJSOC closed in July 2020, the Friends launched a campaign to save it. This ultimately led to negotiations with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, owners of NJSOC, to obtain an interim management agreement for the School. This agreement was finalized in April 2021, and the Friends of NJSOC are proud to offer limited programming at NJSOC with the help of dedicated and talented volunteers. We are pleased to register you for one of our programs!
