Courses and Workshops
Our courses are designed for University Extension field faculty, Extension Master Gardeners, agency professionals, and crop consultants on identification of insects - both beneficial and pesky bugs.
Participants create their own sample collections to use in their follow-up educational projects. These volunteers can identify pests of the Pacific Northwest and will help others do the same.
The training includes many hands-on aspects:
- Collecting, mounting, and identifying pests,
- Using a stereo microscope, and
- Using pest keys.
Training also includes pest management and creation of an educational display.
