Scientists need YOUR help in studying insects everywhere, including your own backyard! Join us for an introduction to entomology, the study of insects. You'll meet some real live animals who call Western North Carolina home and learn how to join our crew of ecoEXPLORERS- kids who submit observations of plants and animals for scientists to study and earn prizes while they do it. Participants, upon registering as a participant at, receive an ecoEXPLORE patch. Find out how you can earn your Entomoloyg Field Badge and a free pass to Monarch Butterfly Day at the Arboretum on June 10. For ages 5 to 13 but all ages are welcome to attend.
