MEMBG/EEB/NHM Interesting Urban Insects
At the Botanical Garden, insects can be observed pollinating flowers, moving seeds, and so much more. Have you ever stopped to wonder what’s flying, crawling, and wriggling around our city? Over 3,000 species of insects have been observed in Los Angeles on the iNaturalist/Seek apps, and new species are still being discovered by scientists today! Anyone can become a community scientist and help to identify and document species living in our city. Meet your insect neighbors and get ready for the 2021 City Nature Challenge (April 30th – May 3rd).
