Are you aware of the variety of insects in the Okanagan Valley?

Lake Country Museum is hoping to enhance your awareness and understanding of Okanagan entomology by presenting Bugs & Us, a lecture presented by local entomologist Dr. Ward Strong.

Bugs & Us is the second lecture in the museum’s 2012 Lecture Series and will be presented on Sunday, Sept. 16.

Dr. Strong will discuss the importance of insects in the Okanagan and showcase his amazing collection of photographs. Copies of his photographs and photographic notecards will be available for sale.

This lecture will be held at the Okanagan Centre Hall (11099 Maddock Avenue, Okanagan Centre) at 1:30 p.m.

The presentation will be followed by an event at the Lake Country Museum to recognize the contribution of the Harvey family who dedicated a substantial and important insect collection to the museum.

This insect collection will be formally unveiled in the Nellie Carter Room of the museum.
