Ladybug Search

When: 07/21/2018, 10:00 am

At 10 AM, South Fork Museum of Natural History hosts a “Lost Ladybug Search” at Quail Hill Farms for children of all ages. The Peconic Land Trust and SoFo have teamed up with Dr. Leslie Allee of Cornell University for its annual search for “lost ladybugs.” Help look for the extremely rare nine-spotted ladybug, New York State’s official insect, and aid in Dr. Allee’s research. Participants will search for and gently capture ladybugs at the farm to be identified and then released. Children must be accompanied by an adult. This program is free; rain date, Wednesday, July 25. Park on Deep Lane and meet at the farm stand. For more information on the “Lost Ladybug Project” visit www.lostladybug.org. For more info or to reserve your spot (required), call 631-537-9735.
