Invertebrates Workshop, at Guelph Arboretum    Wed Mar 21, 2018, Guelph, ON

1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. - In winter’s frigid grasp, insects, spiders and other invertebrates seem to vanish from the surface of the earth. Knowing what to look for and where to find these hidden creatures make cold-weather expeditions far more enjoyable. During this half-day program, we will search for goldenrod gallfly larvae and caterpillars that hide in burrs, learn how woolly bears forecast the severity of winter’s blast, and discover a great variety of other “bugs” that are surviving their most challenging season. Photographs, hands-on bio-artifacts, and especially outdoor exploration and discovery will allow participants to become familiar with our cold and spineless neighbours. Please bring clothing and footwear for trekking in cold and hopefully snowy conditions. A hand lens would also be an asset if you already have one. Guest Instructor: Dan Schneider. Early Bird Fee: $55.00 if done on or before Tuesday, March 13. Registrations after this date will cost $65.00. Note: If we don't have enough registrations by the early bird deadline the course may be cancelled. Maximum 18 adults.
