On Saturday, October 1st, the Undergraduate Entomological Society (UES) visited Spring Green, Wisconsin where they were guided by Gigi La Budde thorough dry sand prairies, oak savannas, and lush deciduous woods. Though the sight of an assemblage of this size, wielding nets and a kill jars, may send some folks running, this trip had no shortage of laughs and, of course, insects! Notable finds include walking sticks, tiger beetles, and so many grasshoppers.
Thank you to the expertise and generosity of Gigi La Budde and the Sam Graham Catalyst Fund for making this trip possible, we cannot wait to revisit in the spring!
