(AT) Advanced Entomology Certification Training

March 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

We have decided to go forth with a Virtual Advanced Ento Training for Master Naturalists this year instead of potentially cancelling again as we did in 2020.  Hopefully this will allow Master Naturalists from further spots in Texas to attend and will turn out to be a good thing!

 

Can you please help us spread the word with your fellow Master Naturalist Chapters?  The blurb and link to register is below.  Thank you!!

The Master Volunteer Entomology Advanced Training Certification is going virtual this year!  Over the course of 8 weeks and over 32 instructional hours, you can gain a greater understanding of entomology, integrated pest management in the garden, landscape and home, be able to identify common insects, spiders and arthropods in Texas, learn about butterfly gardening and native pollinators and much more.  iNaturalist training, invasive insects to watch in Texas, medical entomology, using dichotomous keys for identification will also be covered.

The registration fee includes a field guide, two additional identification tools, loop, many other resources and guides, pin once certification is complete, and an optional collecting kit (net, forceps, killing jars, killing solution, pins, spreading board, magnifier, collecting instructional booklet, pen, labels and collection box).
