My favorite place at Mount Union is the Huston-Brumbaugh Nature Center. Many students do not realize that Mount has its own nature preserve, but it does!

Cali Granger, Resident Entomologist of the Nature Center and UMU Senior, educated participants about some of the insects they may find in the pond and the stream at the Nature Center.

The cool stream in the deep woods is a great place to be on a warm summer afternoon.

Though not an insect, the exciting catch of the day was a salamander.


Back in the lab, Cali identified and described some of the specimens collected.
