ANNUAL POTLUCK DINNER
All monthly meetings are open to the public. If you are interested in insects, please join us!
Members may bring exhibits for show-and-tell. If you have photos, video, or other media to share, please email the society.
This month is our final meeting of the academic year, our annual potluck. Family and friends are welcome, please bring a dish to share, and stay overnight to collect insects if you’d like!
Our featured speaker will be Stan Malcolm, a UConn alumnus who has joined the festivities in the Wagner lab. The title of his talk will be: Collaborative Stridulation and Courtship Behavior in Forked Fungus Beetles
Session Woods is located at: 341 Milford Street (rt 69), Burlington CT
The meeting will be held in the conference room.
We will be able to collect insects at night, so weather permitting, we will be setting up blacklights and sheets. Feel free to bring your own collecting equipment and lights!We will also be allowed to camp overnight, for those who do not wish to travel late (or really want to check the sheets all night).
IF YOU PLAN ON CAMPING, PLEASE RSVP by emailing the society.
This is our annual pot-luck banquet, so please bring a dish to share (please also include a list of ingredients for those with food allergies). Cooking with insects is encouraged! (I’ll be cooking up something with crickets and waxworms, for sure).
Officer elections for next year will take place. Anyone interested in running should email the society
Like past years, we will be holding a silent auction. Please bring any entomological items (books, collecting supplies, artwork, etc) you wish to donate. And remember to bring cash or a checkbook to purchase any auction items.
Please bring ideas for collecting and/or outreach events for this summer and for the fall. National Moth week is coming up!
Family and friends are welcome, and carpooling is encouraged.
The potluck and silent auction will begin at 6, and the meeting will start around 7:30.
Hope to see you then!
