Several events are happening on the grounds that day including the Green City Market. There is no charge to enter the museum for the IBMN workshop. However, check in at the front desk. They will stamp your hand with a butterfly so you will be identified as part of the workshop as you move through the building.
As usual, we have a keynote presentation, several IBMN awards to give out, additional presentations on topics of interest, and plenty of time for talking with each other and asking questions. We will provide bagels, fruit, and coffee, but please bring a sack lunch.
IBMN Director Doug Taron will give his summary of data and some neat developments as well as a few tips on common skippers. If you are new, we will work with you on your site assignments if time allows.
Dr. May Berenbaum will speak on the importance of long-term monitoring projects. Dr. Berenbaum is a professor of entomology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She studies the chemical interactions between herbivorous insects and their hostplants, and the implications of such interactions on the organization of natural communities and the evolution of species.
