Come explore with Lepidopterists (scientists who study butterflies and moths) Kristin Rossetti and Matt Standridge from the Florida Museum’s Daniels Lab to learn the many wonders of the insect world and how scientists collect and study insects in the field. Investigate a diversity of live insects and their life cycles, role as pollinators and learn the importance of museum collections.
