Instructor: Dana Ross, M.S.
Dates: Monday-Wednesday, June 19-21, 2017
We will explore the world of Lepidoptera —the butterflies and moths — in this three-day course. Starting with an overview of butterfly-moth morphology, life cycles, ecology and behavior, we’ll then inspect images and specimens of Siskiyou species in the classroom. Monday and Tuesday afternoons, students will have opportunities to work in the field netting and inspecting butterflies and learning proper netting and collection techniques. Day 3 will be spent entirely in the field near the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.
