Part of MWA's Adult Camp experience: Insects are the most abundant animals on earth! Not only are these creepy-crawlies everywhere, they provide us many necessary benefits. Through a variety of interactive hikes in MWA's Education Trail and the surrounding river environs, this camp will explore the conservation of bees, butterflies and birds in your yard. Expect there to be some humorous double-entendre in keeping with camp's title as our gifted educators warm to their adult audience. (Preview: Monarch butterfly males will sometimes conduct aerial take-downs, grabbing females out of their air and mating with them on the ground!) Campers will collect insect-friendly natural materials during their field time to construct and take home their own insect "hotel". We will meet at MWA's River Resource Center, but if conditions are right, we will carpool over to Point Mountain Reservation (~5 miles away) for the birding.
