Outreach and Education

The Fernald Club organizes outreach events involving the UMass and Amherst area communities.

Some of our past events include:

  • Tours of the live insect collection with students from Amherst and Springfield elementary & middle schools
  • Annual Earth Day celebration, featuring presentations from UMass professors on hot topics in entomology, plus the hottest insect-inspired baked goods from club-member kitchens
  • Insect photo contest
  • The Pollinator Hotel: a collaboration with the UMass Permaculture Garden to provide housing for local pollinators
