Wild One’s Meeting: Flower Bugs – Online
Wednesday January 10 – 7pm
Angella Moorehouse – Flower Bugs
Angella has worked for 27 years in west-central Illinois as a field representative for the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission. She got her BS and MS degrees in biology from Western Illinois University with a focus on avian and plant ecology. Her principal duties involve the long-term protection of high-quality natural areas using conservation easements, land acquisition, and management agreements.
Angella has spent the past 8 years using photography to document location, habitat, and plant associations for insects and other terrestrial invertebrates. In conjunction with the Field Museum in Chicago, she has published rapid field guides using her photographs to aid in field identification for wasps, flies, bees, and moths. She serves as the species lead for the Illinois Department of Natural Resources for the regal fritillary butterfly and coordinator for the terrestrial invertebrate endangered species technical advisory committee.
