Our leader will be Dr. David Gregg of the RI Natural History Survey and BioBlitz fame. We will look for insects that inhabit the shoreline and fields of the Preserve and learn how scientists track and study them. Dr. Gregg has been trapping moths at the Preserve for several years. We will open his trap and learn what moths and other insects can tell us about the environment and any changing trends. Please wear sturdy shoes and bring binoculars, hand lens, and insect protection. And yes, we will have bagels. Meet at Middlebridge Preserve, 95 Middlebridge Road, Narragansett, RI. FREE and open to the public.
