Fee: $150 Members, $175 Non-Members   
Part of KNC’s new Adult Education Courses at Heronwood Field Station (6378 Hart Drive), this class is designed as a general introduction to Entomology – the study of insects.  The course assumes no prior knowledge in the subject; however, a general grasp of basic biology will enrich the learning experience. Classes will include a lecture or demonstration and hands-on exercises. The hands-on portion will focus on insect observation, curating, and identification.  Students will be introduced to the diversity of insects with a focus on those commonly observed orders and families in southwest Michigan. Register by May 13.
