Bugs on Alfalfa at a local event Sept 20

Wow, we've made it to 156 observations and 56 species! It's been fun to see the bug communities on alfalfa change heading into fall -- there are more grasshoppers and skippers showing up on our site these days.

Zach Gompert, Adair Schruhl, and I plan to summarize what we've found so far at the "Science Unwrapped" event on Sept 20 at the Eccles Science Learning Center, room 130, at Utah State University in Logan, UT. From 7-8pm there will be a presentation by other researchers about "Food for Thought," and afterwards, we will be a part of the after-seminar activities. If you can, come visit our table!

Cheers, Lauren
