Night Insect Viewing Event in Ware, MA!

Have you ever wanted to see what insect diversity can be found in an area that is undergoing lots of habitat restoration? If so, come join the New England Entomological Society in Ware, MA this Saturday, July 29, 2017! We will be setting up lots of lights on a gorgeous property with lots of different habitats (wet meadows, inland restoring pine barrens, deciduous forest). The property is owned by our members Brian and Martha Klassanos. Brian and Martha have been the recipients of several MA Fish and Wildlife Grants and are working on restoring parts of the largest inland Pine Barrens in Massachusetts. They have recorded many cool species at their home, and we hope to find many more at this event! Please RSVP to this event by clicking here (
