Event Details

Sunday, September 8, 2019
1:30-3 p.m.
Kiosk at entrance to Picnic Point, 2004 University Bay Dr., Madison WI 53706
Entomologist Tom Morgan will bring some insects and booklets to introduce the walk, and then we’ll look for insects along trails in the woods and in the microhabitats of the Biocore Prairie. We hope to see dragonflies hawking for prey, soldier beetles & longhorned beetles on flower blossoms, and insect galls or emergence holes from seed pods.
