2019 Meet the Beetles: Carabidae and Coleoptera
Instructor: James LaBonte, M.S. Dates: Thursday-Friday, May 2-3, 2019 Location: SFI, Selma Tuition: $150
Among the almost 5,000 beetle species known to live in Oregon, most fascinating behavioral, structural, and feeding adaptations are in the Carabidae (ground beetles) and other families predominantly associated with the soil and leaf litter. In this spring workshop, we’ll focus on these families, but will also explore the many additional families of beetles found in the area. Field trips within the Illinois Valley, lectures, labs and optional night collecting will give us plenty of opportunities to collect and observe diverse species.
