Venus — Dr. Mark Deyrup, Entomologist at Archbold Biological Station, will lead a special nature walk on Saturday, May 6, at 9 a.m. Dr. Deyrup, author of “Ants of Florida: Identification and Natural History,” will focus on the many interesting insects found in the Florida Scrub at Archbold. The tour will start on the West Porch of the Frances Archbold Hufty Learning Center at Archbold Biological Station and walk along the Discovery Nature Trail. Sign-in begins at 8:30 a.m. with the walk beginning at 9. This event is free to the public. Families are encouraged to attend.

One of the favorite aspects of meeting and going out in nature with Dr. Deyrup is that he encourages attendees to bring a bug(s) to his event and he will try to identify it and tell you more about it. Deyrup commented, “It is much easier to look at a bug specimen in person to give the most accurate information.”
