Students who take a June 16 entomology workshop at Salamonie Lake will learn about collecting, identifying and pinning insects.
The workshop is open to adults and children ages 10 and older. Participation would be a great supplement for kids working on an insect collection for 4-H or scouting. Students younger than 12 should be accompanied by an adult.
The workshop runs 1-3 p.m. at the Salamonie Interpretive Center and costs $5 per family. Light refreshments will be served.
Marvin Wright will lead the workshop. Wright has helped many 4-H kids with insect identification and display.
Advance registration is requested by calling Upper Wabash Interpretive Services at (260) 468-2127.
The standard entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle will be waived for students registered in advance.
The interpretive center is near Andrews in Salamonie Lake’s Lost Bridge West State Recreation Area, off of Highway 105 in western Huntington County.
