      Hi Caitlin

      Covid has hindered us in having programs. I have though, got a list for Harry Fullers Fall birding trip that looks like we will be able to have. In order to make this work, everyone has to have been fully vaccinated and willing to share a dorm and van to travel. If I get more Entomology sign ups, I will most certainly contact you and try to move this forward! Thank you for your interest.

    My name is Jeanelly. I was excited to reach out to someone in a department involving biology and entomology- if you are not the correct person to reach out to regarding this matter, please correct me.

    I currently live in Henderson, Nevada and would love to know if you are interested or any other department may be interested in any of my 20 hatched-today Empusa Pennata praying mantids. They are beautiful creatures and I’d like to find them homes in research or to serious care takers.

    From my understanding these are rare to have in the states and I’d love to find them homes in research as I’m an avid mantis keeper.

    I hope you will consider or direct me to someone who may be interested.
