Insects in Your Garden with Betsy Betros

Part of the Gardeners Connect Free Speaker Series

Saturday, April 18, 2020
This Event has been cancelled.
10:00 a.m.

We are never alone in our gardens. There is always a kinetic energy there in addition to the plants that is provided by the butterflies and other insects there. Area entomologist Betsy Betros plans to share some of her enthusiasm with us about them in a program titled “Insects in the Garden.”

Betsy is the author of “A Photographic Field Guide to the Butterflies in the Kansas City Region.” She graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor of science degree in entomology in 1976, but she focused on aquatic insects then and during her career. In retirement, Betsy has focused on terrestrial species. Her “Photographic Field Guide” was published in 2008. She is a contributor to BugGuide.net and active with Idalia Butterfly Society.
