Day of Insects at Reiman Gardens

Registration and the schedule for the 12th annual Day of Insects at Reiman Gardens on March 28th 2020 and other activities is now online: http://www.reimangardens.com/collections/insects/day-of-insects/

If you are unfamiliar with DOI, the day is filled with presentations from professionals, academics, advocates, and enthusiasts covering a range of insect related topics. From beginners to seasoned veterans, DOI has something for anyone interested in or involved with insects.

Again this year for individuals that are in town early the night before we will have an opening reception. Come be casual, enjoy dinner, get to know other insect enthusiasts, there’s more of us than you think. Anyone attending DOI can sign up to attend the reception and there will be some slots made available for individuals unable to attend DOI so they can participate as well. Registration for the reception can be completed on the link listed above as well. The reception will include a keynote by Doug Taron, The Chicago Academy of Science / Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.

There will be three workshops on Friday afternoon on invertebrate related topics for those interested in attending. Be sure to check times as there is overlap and you will not be able to attend all of them. Individuals can participate in the workshops regardless if they are attending any of the other DOI activities.
