About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, June 18, 2021.

Insects eat plants-let us count the ways! There is a surprising and incredible variety of ways to eat plants, ranging from chewing them to sucking out their juices (like mosquitoes do to us), to mining trails through the insides of leaves, to creating tumors on plants that create fresh food. In this workshop we will explore different ways insects eat plants and discuss the adaptations behind some of these methods of feeding. Then we will work on finding examples of herbivores in nature to provide you with some tools for contributing to science by looking closely at the small things feeding on plants in your backyard.
