Learn about Alaska’s insects and their relatives - from our beautiful butterflies and dragonflies to our less-loved mosquitoes and spiders. Through field, forest and pond, under rocks, in flowers and everywhere else, we’ll collect (catch and release some, keep others to build a collection of preserved specimens campers can take home) and study these fascinating many-legged tiny animals.

Taught by Derek Sikes, UAMN Curator of Insects, and Melissa Sikes, Natural Resource Education Specialist at the Fairbanks Soil and Water Conservation District .

Register through UAF Summer Sessions.
