Be The Media! Workshop with Brandon Ballengée: Love Motel for Insects: Nighttime Insect Watching and Arthropod Monitoring
June 7, 2014 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm EDT
A participatory workshop on biodiversity and “ecosystem activism” designed to train amateurs to assist in art and science research. The Love Motel for Insects was a huge hit with the people that participated as they were able to learn valuable information about bugs and how they interact in nature. Each person got a hand-out with bugs labeled on the paper to determine which one was which and their role in the environment. This workshop created a temporary “Love Motel for Insects” using insect attracting lights and bait to draw in local nocturnal creatures.
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
