We focus on the interaction of plants, soils and the use of land for the mutual benefit of people and sustainable environments. Our students acquire knowledge leading to successful careers through hands-on learning and internships.

Bug Week Program at CT State Museum of Natural History

Saturday, July 25, 1-3pm
CT State Museum of Natural History, UConn Storrs Campus
Explore the world of insects both indoors and out with Pamm Cooper and Joan Allen from the UConn Home & Garden Education Center. Live specimens of various insects including walking sticks will be on hand to greet you and give you an up close look at some of the most fascinating animals that share our fields, gardens and trees. Weather permitting, we will spend time outside searching for and identifying insects. This event is part of the first annual UConn Bug Week and will be of interest to people of all ages. Check out this and other events, and learn more about some of Connecticut’s tiny inhabitants on the official Bug Week website: www.bugs.uconn.edu. Questions? Email bugweek@uconn.edu for more information.
