Meet Your Greens

 Backyard Bugs: A Photographic Tour
with Brian Stewart
This Thursday, October 15 at 5:30 pm

Meet Your Greens is back from hiatus! For one very special session, The Rockfall Foundation will be hosting Meet Your Greens outdoors at Wadsworth Mansion. Our guest speaker is Brian Stewart. He will be introducing us to the tremendous diversity of insects you can find in your own backyard. With beautiful photographs taken on his own quarter acre in Middletown, come explore the intriguing world of insects. He has catalogued 430+ insect species so far, with over a hundred more that have not yet been identified. Walk away with an understanding of your role as a steward for these creatures whose “right” it is to be there.

Plan to arrive around 5:30, with the speaker beginning at 5:45. Free to participate. Safety protocol for COVID-19 will be adhered to, so pre-registration is required.
