Probably not what a group of scientists from the Bohart Museum of Entomology did.
They journeyed to Belize to collect insects for the museum and brought back about 100,000 specimens. Entomologist Fran Keller, a Bohart associate who received her doctorate from UC Davis, co-led the tour. She is now an assistant professor of zoology at Folsom Lake College.
You can learn about their journey, what they collected, and also glean information on how to collect insects if you attend the Bohart Museum's open house from 1 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 18 in Room 1124 of the Academic Surge Building, located on Crocker Lane.
The event, free and open to the public, is the first in a series of weekend open houses at the Bohart Museum during the academic year.
The Bohart Museum's regular hours are from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. The museum is closed to the public on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and on major holidays. Admission is free.
