True Flies - Masters of the Air, presented by Val Bugh.
Vectors of disease, pests of livestock and humans, "worms" that damage fruits and vegetables: these are all typical associations that we have for flies. However, this group of insects also includes predators, pollinators, waste recyclers, and a key component of all terrestrial and freshwater habitats. Through vibrant photographic images, we will explore the diversity, physiology, life cycle, and survival strategies of this important order of insects.
You may arrive up to 15 minutes early to chat with other bug lovers. The meeting begins shortly after 7pm. We start with members sharing observations, do a little bit of club business, and then begin the presentation. The presentation is usually an hour long, and we're typically closing the meeting between 8:30 and 9:00pm.
Your RSVP is not required, but those who RSVP will receive email reminders and allow people to learn about other members.
