EntomologyTens of thousands of kinds of insects live in Idaho, many unknown even to scientists. You could be the first to discover them! Start your own insect collection and add to it over time. Learn where to look for insects and how to identify them. Find out amazing facts about how insects eat; conduct experiments; and make works of art. Activities might include testing ant food preferences, conducting honey bee learning experiments, planning a butterfly garden, and more.
