Bug Pinning Party | Wild Oakland Walks
Have you ever wanted to create an awesome and educational display of the insects you find in your backyard or around your neighborhood? Learn how to start, optimize and maintain insects in a pinned collection with Wild Oakland on Saturday, August 9, 2014.
Free, but an RSVP is required to email@example.com.
Scientifically mounted specimens are valuable pinpoints of data, records that show an insect population is or was once present in a habitat or ecosystem. What use are they languishing in vials on a shelf when they could be counted as part of a formal insect collection?
Come learn the basics of insect collection management. Participants will receive a display box, attractive box pouches, vials, loupes, forceps and instructions. Whether yours is a collection of one or many, your effort to manage a collection will be supported. You can use stock specimens or BYOB (Bring Your Own Bug).
