I have always been interested in nature and my interest in insects and arachnids has been accentuated over the last few years by the location that I Live (Northeast Central Washington) and my Job. I am the Collections Manager for the Stonerose interpretive Center and Eocene fossil site. This site has not only a world class assemblage of flora but many interesting insects( and one possible spider) represented including one of the oldest Tiger moths in North America
