A basic look at insect diversity, and some of the best practices for encouraging interesting insects in your garden. Will also cover practical resources for identification, do some myth-busting, and talk about some of the unusual behaviours and life-cycles that can be appreciated with a bit of careful observation. Bring any insects or photos of insects you want identified!
