Come learn about Orthoptera! The grasshoppers, katydids, and crickets of North America (north of Mexico) present a highly diverse species assemblage. The presentation will go over taxonomy, identification, ecology, and more! While the presentation will cover most of North America, there will be a focus on the Texas fauna.
