Interested in learning more about aquatic insects? Join us for our annual entomology lab/ barbecue under the Watt Avenue Bridge and discover what the fish are dining on!
There is a $5 charge for park entrance (or an annual pass) and $10 for the hamburgers/dogs BBQ prepared by Chefs Richard and Margaret Slabaugh and delicious potluck foods brought by all - appetizers, salads, or dessert. Adult beverages are provided by Gary Howard. Be sure to bring a chair as there is no seating available. Also please bring your CFFU name badge.
The Entomology class is taught by Ken Davis, an aquatic biologist, and CFFU member. It will be partly lecture followed by in-the-water collecting bugs. Bring water shoes to wet wade, or waders and boots, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, and any bug collecting equipment you have. This class fulfills one of the requirements for the Coachman Program, and is an excellent presentation about a variety of insects.
