Lady Beetles are adored by many, and who can blame them? Their bright patterns captivate the eyes and their reputation as pest predators make them a friend to farmers and gardeners. Naturalist Julia Pupko from the Vermont Center for Ecostudies will tell us everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Lady Beetles, and more.
Though many of us are familiar with the nonnative Asian Lady Beetle did you know that of Vermont’s 35 native lady beetle species 12 have not been seen since the 1970’s?  It’s a mystery we’re eager to solve so join us for The BEETLES Are Coming! and help us find our missing beetles!

Date and Time:  Thursday, May 27th at 7pm.
