Learn All About Insects at Event

Waubonsee Community College will present “Insects and Spiders: The Good, The Bad and the Weird” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 10 in the Auditorium of the Sugar Grove Campus, Route 47 at Waubonsee Drive.

During this free event, Waubonsee Assistant Professor of Biology Danielle DuCharme will discuss the importance of insects to the environment and to humans, including their role as a food source. Participants will even get a chance to sample food containing insects — if they dare.

Attendees will also view live and preserved insects and learn more about all the recent bedbug hype.  

This event is designed for ages 16 and up. To reserve your spot, please call the college’s Community Education department at (630) 466-7900, ext. 2360.
