Lost Ladybug Project at Quail Hill Farm
August 12, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
10 am – Noon
Cosponsored: The Peconic Land Trust–Quail Hill Farm and the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo)
The Peconic Land Trust and SoFo team up with scientists from Cornell University for our annual search for more “lost ladybugs” at Quail Hill Farm. Gently capture, identify, and release ladybugs to further Cornell University’s “Lost Ladybug Project.” Children can join a special expedition, led by Andrew Blaurock, a budding entomologist and SoFo member, who has successfully captured the nine-spotted ladybug in past searches! Wear sunscreen and bring a digital camera if you have one. Children must be accompanied by a willing adult participant. There is no charge for anyone for this program, so bring friends. Please park on Deep Lane and meet at the farmstand. For more information on the “Lost Ladybug Project” visit www.lostladybug.org. Cancelled if there are heavy rains.
To make a reservation for this program, please call the museum at 631.537.9735
This is a FREE program for members and nonmembers
