Join us to observe the wide variety of these fascinating creatures. Discover what makes an insect unique. Explore the differences between insects, spiders, and other kinds of arthropods.  On a hike we’ll search for insect habitats and gently capture a few arthropods to study and then release. Participants will enjoy a 1.5-mile-hike on natural surface trails across uneven terrain.
