This autumn/winter, we will be offering a four-part lecture series "The Little Things That Run the World". These in person lectures will focus on four fascinating insect groups, and their role in regional biodiversity and agriculture. The richly illustrated presentations will explore the amazing worlds of bees, ground beetles, ants, and wasps. What do these insects look like? How many species do we know of? What have we learned about what they are doing? And how can we help them to continue thriving in our landscape?
