Conservation Talks at Martin Griffin Preserve


Date: Saturday, July 8, 2017

Time: 11:00am-4:00pm

Phone: 415-868-9244

Join us for a conservation talk and nature connection with Eddie Dunbar. Eddie Dunbar will be leading a discussion of creepy crawlies and an insect safari. Eddie Dunbar is Founder and President of the Insect Sciences Museum of California, where he leads a citizen-based survey of San Francisco Bay Area insects. Insect safari goers will explore the insects that inhabit the varied spaces on the Preserve. We will get up close and personal using the same tools that real entomologists use. Nets, magnifying loupes, forceps and vials will be used to capture, observe and release insects of Audobon Canyon Ranch. The insect safari will cover what insects are, why they are so succesful and what roles insects play in the ecology. Students debrief, sharing the insects they have discovered, where the insects were found, and what they were doing.
