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.
