Ants on display at the Smithsonian

A new exhibit at the Smithsonian in Washington, D. C. opens this Saturday and runs through October.  The displays will include a live leafcutter colony, photographs by Mark Moffett, and casts of real nests by Walter Tschinkel.  Should be worth checking out if you’re in the area.  Details here.

    For the opening of the exhibit, on Saturday May 30th, 1-4pm, the museum is having Ant Family Festival at the National Museum of Natural History. Mark Moffett will be discussing his photos, folks from Ted Schultz’s lab will have attine colonies on display and be talking about their research and there will be other activities. I hope readers in the DC area can come by.
