SOLD OUT – Beneficial (and Some Bad) Bug Identification

June 6, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saturday, June 6

10 am – 12 pm

Graeser Family Education Center, WBG

$15, $10 WBG members (use code WBGMEMBER at checkout to receive discount)

Gardens are filled with all sorts of insects, both helpful and harmful. Gain confidence and some practical experience identifying those beneficial bugs, beyond our well-known species like honeybees and butterflies. We’ll learn how to identify the signs and symptoms of altruistic insects living in your garden, what they look like from the egg to adult, and spend time in the WBG gardens on a group beneficial insect hunt. Inevitably, we may come across some bad bugs that need to be recognized and managed. Opportunity to visit WBG’s Avish estate kitchen gardens for bugs after this class is available to registrants as well from 1 to 2 pm.

Instructor: Andrew Hagerty

All class participants must wear a mask and abide by appropriate social distancing protocol.



Refund Policy
Although we are unable to refund registration fees in the case of cancellation by the purchaser, the paid registration can be transferred to another student. In this case, please notify Allison Whitehouse at AWHITEHOUSE@WATERFRONTGARDENS.ORG or 502-276-5404 with the name of who will attend in your place. Multi-event series cannot be transferred. In the event that Waterfront Botanical Gardens cancels a class for any reason (e.g. low enrollment, instructor unavailability, natural hazard, etc.), we will attempt to reschedule the class or event. If there is no reschedule, the purchaser will be issued a full refund. Refunds are issued by check only. Beargrass Canoe Tours have a different policy with no refunds under any circumstance because of river and weather volatility.
Emergency Cancellation
In the event of an emergency cancellation, the Gardens will contact registered students with a cancellation notice (always provide/maintain a current email address and phone number so that we may notify you of an emergency or cancellation). The Gardens will attempt to reschedule classes cancelled due to an emergency event if possible.
