11 AM - 1 PM
Grasshoppers can do extreme damage to farm crops, but without these insects our environment would be a completely different place. They play an important part of balancing the ecosystem by breaking down plants and fertilizing soil are just a few of their benefits. This beautiful female bold violet purple grasshopper uses its bright colored hind wings to defend itself.  The sudden display of purple color hidden beneath its green front wings startles it's predators and gives him a chance to escape. This colorful grasshopper is only found in the tropical lowlands of French Guyana in Northern South America. 
In this two-hour class, we'll teach you step-by-step how to hydrate, spread, pin, and preserve your own insects. You'll get hands-on experience spreading and pinning one , and you'll get to take your new intricate beauty home at the end of the class. This surprisingly Zen activity is highly-recommended as an essential part of the Paxton Gate experience.
