The Peconic Land Trust and SoFO team up with Dr. Leslie Allee from Cornell University to search for “lost ladybugs.” Native ladybugs – like the endangered nine-spotted ladybug, New York State’s official insect – were once very common but are now extremely rare while ladybugs from other parts of the world have greatly increased. Help in Dr. Allee’s research by gently capturing ladybugs at the farm. Each will be identified and then released. Children must be accompanied by a willing adult participant.
FREE! Rain date is Wednesday, July 19. Please park on Deep Lane and meet at the farmstand. For more information and to reserve, contact the Peconic Land Trust at 631.283.3195 or email to Events@PeconicLandTrust.org.
