Insects and Spiders of San Diego County with Johnson Jou and Joy Inton
September 16, 2020 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Bees, ladybugs, and butterflies. Let’s face it—beyond that, insects and spiders need publicists. Enter Joy Inton and Johnson Jou, two of the most enthusiastic, creepy-crawly-ologists in our region. Johnson and Joy will educate us about the remarkable insect and spider diversity in San Diego County. Mixing natural history with a dash of storytelling, they will bring to the forefront the significance of these invertebrates among ecosystems, within the food web, and in our lives.
Graduates of UCSD in biology and ecological systems, Johnson and Joy have served as researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and educators at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. Joy also works as an ambassador at the San Diego Safari Park and Johnson is involved in the identification of native bee species at the San Diego Natural History Museum.
The most diverse groups of living animals, approximately 35,000 identified species of spiders and 925,000 species of insects—or 10 quintillion individuals—inhabit the planet on any given day. Join us on Zoom. It’s time to meet our neighbors.
