I teach biology at a small liberal arts college in Central Aappalachia. We have recently started teaching entomology at our school and have been building a small reference collection. We have been pleased by the enthusiasm this class has generated and how it has helped students, and their families, connect better with this beautiful landscape.

I have always had a passion for entomology and am so excited to be living in such a rich, biodiverse part of the world. Most of my collection, which is donated to the school, comes from my 12 acres of heaven.

I appreciate the help from this website and the many volunteers helping to id critters, as it is overwhelming to try and become familiar with so many insects from so many insect groups as we have in Appalachia.
