This event includes collecting specimens for l.5 hours and then returning to tables at the Daniels Barnyard for display, identification and information. All ages are welcome. Persons interested in attending should be prepared for walking in the woods including closed toed shoes and long pants (familiarize yourself with ticks and poison ivy).
