4th Sunday Nature Walk – Judy Aschner will show us insects on our prairie

Date: September 24, 2023
Time: 2:00 – 3:30 p.m
Location: 1787 Holford Road

Judy will show us and tell us how insects are incredibly important to life as we know it. They are vital both as pollinators and as a food source for birds and animals. We will be on the hunt for late summer prairie/grassland insects. Bring your camera or phone so we can record our observations on iNaturalist. Also, bring a magnifying glass if you have one so you can see the amazing detail of their structure.

Judy Aschner Is a North Texas Master Naturalist and Entomology Specialist whose main interest is insects – their lifestyles and interrelatedness with man and each other. She is an active iNaturalist contributor who has over 800 observations of over 500 species.
