While our in-person community programs may currently be closed, we’ve been busy hatching new ideas to explore the world around us together and are excited to announce our new series, Phenology Friday! Each week, one of IslandWood’s educators will be sharing a phenological highlight. Watch the video of their explorations and then share your own observations with us using #PhenologyFriday! Learn more here.
Pro tip: It’s a good idea to search for bugs on a sunny day, when you’ll find more out and about. If it’s rainy, (gently) check under rocks, logs, and other objects.
It’s the perfect time of year to flex your amateur entomologist skills and explore the world of ladybugs, bees, millipedes, and more!
In this week’s edition of #PhenologyFriday, join Brightwater Programs Manager Derek Jones (and his two favorite assistants 😁) for an exploration of the bugs in his neighborhood.
We want to hear from you! Have questions about the bugs featured in this video? Spotting some cool insects out and about recently? Share with us in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn using the hashtag #PhenologyFriday!
