Invasive or Not? Ntoukas

Throughout 'The Life of a Dead Tree', insects will be collected as they emerge out of the ash tree on display. This workshop begins with an introduction on what invasive species are, how they enter our ecosystems, and the risks they present. Participants will then have the opportunity to look at insect specimens and identify whether they are invasive or not. Those interested will also have the option to stay and draw an insect or write what about they learned in the workshop.
