The Wild and Wonderful World of Insects - WCLT meeting June 11, 7PM
Monday, June 11, 2012
7:00 - 8:00 PM
St. Luke’s Parish Hall, 1 Ruggles Street
For forty days and forty nights, naturalists Charley Eiseman and Noah Charney traveled the continent. They returned with thousands of photographs, not of Yosemite's grand vistas or Yellowstone's bison herds, but of tiny eggs stuck to flagpoles, origami made by beetles, and the artfully crafted portable houses of caddisfly larvae. The trip was field work for their new book, Tracks and Sign of Insects and Other Invertebrates, which won the 2010 National Outdoor Book Award for best nature guidebook. Egg cases, cocoons, galls, leaf mines, burrows, nests, and many other curiosities are illustrated in the book’s pages. In this talk, the authors will show images of exquisite invertebrate-created objects, discuss mind-boggling natural history, and share amusing anecdotes from their eccentric journeys. Professional entomologists and bug-haters alike have found themselves rolling with laughter and staring in horrified fascination during this entertaining presentation. Presentation followed by reception and refreshments.
8:00 - 9:00 PM: Annual Meeting
