12/5 - Seattle Meeting - "High School Entomology" Jim Reed
Join veteran science teacher, Jim Reed, as he shares his experience in teaching high school entomology. Jim has been teaching for 42 years and is still the high school science department for remote Klickitat High School. He has developed an interest in butterflies and other insects and as his passion grew, he has been able to share his interest with his students. Spend an evening with Jim as he shares what he has for challenges and the rewards of his unique class. While Jim is a Board Member for the Washington Butterfly Association and appreciates its non-collecting stance, he has been developing some non-collecting ideas so that all students can decide for themselves whether to develop a collection, add to the school collection or to be a butterfly advocate in a non-collecting forum. Meetings are available for members to attend using Zoom from where ever they may be.

What we're about

The Washington Butterfly Association is dedicated to the enjoyment, conservation and understanding of butterflies and their ecology through education and scientific understanding.

Founded in 1999, we have members all over the state of Washington. Our monthly meetings are in Seattle. They are held on the first Wednesday of the month in September thru December, then February thru May. We invite all people interested in butterflies to attend our meetings. Kids are always welcome.

Our topics are normally related to butterflies and moths. Occasionally we will throw in a meeting about some other nature topic. Examples are: binoculars, bats, dragon flies.
