An Evening of Entomology at the UI Research Park Amphitheatre "Step into a world that until now you've only just stepped on!"
Families and friends are invited to share an evening with the insects, brought to you by the scientists of the Illinois Natural History Survey and the Fox Development Corporation.

- an Ask the Expert Booth will answer all your entomological questions.
- giant insect models will take you into the fascinating realm of insect form and function.
- learn about how to perfect the art of fly-tying for that next fishing trip.
