Put a Pin In It: Insect Pinning Workshop

 | Bee & Bloom

Our very own Emily Parker will be leading a 2-part series on how to collect, pin, and preserve insects for scientific collection (or just for fun). She will be sharing knowledge gained from the University of California Davis entomology program and guiding you through process of insect curation from beginning to end.

     In this workshop, we will be pinning and preserving the insects we collected on the August 13th field collection trip. Some materials will be provided (material list is below). Insect donations to the PUB collection are appreciated.

    There is an optional outing to learn more about field collection on August 27th - check it out here.
