Beetles make up one of the largest orders of insects in the world. They inhabit nearly every ecosystem, except for the ocean and Antarctica, and play an important role, whether good or bad, in our economy. They are pollinators, pests, predators, plant eaters, scavengers, mimics, and much more. Join me in Under the Scope: Beetles at the Morton Arboretum as we delve into this fascinating group of insects and see how they can inspire creativity as well. Registration closes on Monday, October 8, 2018.
