Location: 'Imiloa Astronomy Center

A Maunakea Speakers Series Presentation by Heather Stever, held Thursday, April 20 at ╩╗Imiloa's Moanahoku Hall.

Insects are all around us. Heather Stever will explain the difference between insects and arthropods, why they are so important in Hawai╩╗i, and the role these residents play in making Maunakea what it is.
