Murphree Speaks at ‘Insects of the Night’ Festival

On July 13, biology Professor Steve Murphree was a speaker at the Warner Parks Nature Center’s “Insects of the Night” festival. Murphree set up a UV light/scorpion tent for the event.  A great time was had by all the lightening bugs, bees and random creepy crawlers that dressed up for the insect parade.

Biology Associate Professor Lori McGrew and environmental science student Erin Pitts also were volunteers. Pitts is working at Warner Parks Nature Center this summer.
