Looking for Ladybugs

Saturday, July 8, 9:30-11:30am
Birnberg Preserve
Heritage Trail, Chester NY

OCLT’s volunteer wildlife educator Pam Golben will lead a family-friendly walk along the Pollinator Path at Birnberg Preserve in search of nine-spotted ladybugs, the official insect of New York State.

This fun and exciting event is a follow-up to a coordinated effort held last July in which volunteers released ladybug larvae at the preserve.

Participants at this upcoming event will help gauge the effectiveness of the previous release, which was held in conjunction with the Lost Ladybug Project at Cornell University’s Department of Entomology.
