Camp Kawartha Environment Centre


Beetles are the most diverse group of multi-cellular organisms on the planet. Come and learn how to tell a beetle from other insects and how to identify many of the most common families. After an introduction to this amazingly successful group of animals we will use sweep nets, pond nests and other hands-on techniques to check out the local beetle fauna.

If you have a hand-lens or field microscope, please bring them.

Paul Elliott will lead the session at the Environment Centre and in the immediate environs of the Trent University Wildlife Sanctuary. We will finish around noon.
