TX A&M Insect Collection Open House

Post by 58chevy »

Msg from Karen W. Wright, Associate Curator, Texas A&M University Insect Collection

Dear Colleagues:

You are cordially invited to the annual "open house" of the Texas A&M University Insect Collection to meet with others who share an interest in the study of Texas insects. This is the 33nd annual meeting, and we hope to have another excellent gathering this year. Each year our meeting attracts a diverse group of people - professional and amateur - with a broad range of interests. There is no formal program, but it will be a chance to show off new curiosities and catch up on the past year's news and collecting stories. Please feel free to invite newcomers who share our interest.

The event will be held on Saturday, January 7th, 2023. As in recent years, the entire day will be spent at the Minnie Belle Heep Building (a.k.a., “the Heep Center”). Starting time will be around 9 AM. Meeting areas will be available on the 2nd floor of the atrium adjacent to the TAMU Insect Collection room (Room 216). Lunch will be on your own. The atrium meeting areas, 2 lab rooms and the Texas A&M University Insect Collection will be open for the remainder of the afternoon.

Parking will be available in lot no. 67 on the east side of the building and no special permit is required for parking on Saturday.

See attachment for full invitation.
