Investigating Insects at the Monument

  • This event has passed.

Join Intern Raven Patrick for her investigation on the insects that call the monument their home

This walk and talk program dives deep into the invertebrate world around us, and teaches you to be less afraid of the creepy crawlies in your yard. Led by Raven Patrick, the program intends to describe what insects are, how to identify insects, and their role in our ecosystems! Time will be dedicated to learning insect anatomy, practicing identifying insects to general families, and understanding the difference between our important local and invasive species.

Raven Patrick has a bachelor’s in science from Colorado Mesa University and is pursuing her master’s in entomology. She has traveled to many diverse ecosystems all the way from the Alaskan wilderness to the Amazon Rainforest. Raven is currently interning through a dual internship between Colorado National Monument Association and the National Park Service. Her hope is to research the role insects have in preserving our natural world, as well as the role insects play in helping forensic investigations. She is excited to share her insect knowledge with the world!

Monument pass or entrance fee is required.
