Join writer, educator, and amateur naturalist Matthew Wills for a family-friendly afternoon of insect watching. In the same spirit as bird watching, observe the tiny invertebrates that favorite birds eat and that pollinate the flowers around us.

At least 950 species—and counting—of insects and spiders have been sighted in Green-Wood. Herbivores and carnivores, pollinators and parasites, beneficial and detrimental, beautiful and, sometimes, frightening—the Cemetery’s smallest, most ephemeral life-forms provide a fascinating wealth of learning opportunities.
