Entomology Workshop Pinning and Learning: Butterflies


Sunday, November 3, 2019, 10:00am to 11:00am


Harvard Museum of Natural History, 26 Oxford Street

Instructor: Mickey Alice Kwapis

Learn about the anatomy and life cycles of insects and prepare your own beautiful butterfly specimen for display. Participants will explore the wild world of insects through a visit to the arthropod gallery, accompanied by an activity where you will learn to prepare and preserve a butterfly that you get to display in your home. Tools and illustrated instructions are provided for students to keep.

This is a fun and engaging activity that can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age.

Students under 12 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone who can work with the child, at no additional charge. If the chaperone wishes to complete their own project, a second insect must be purchased by through a separate registration.

This class starts promptly at 10am and ends at 11am. Due to the time-sensitive nature of the preservations process, students who are delayed are asked to call ahead so we know when to expect you. A contact phone number will be provided after you are registered. We will accommodate late arrivals to the best of our ability but late students are not guaranteed to finish their projects during designated class time.

$35 members/$40 nonmembers

Advance registration required.
