The Lorquin Entomological Society will meet on Friday May 27th with guest speaker Eric Eaton.

Eric Eaton is one of the principal authors of the Kaufman Field Guide to Insects of North America and a variety of other books and articles on insects and other animals. He has written for Ranger Rick, Missouri Conservationist and Timeline.

Mr. Eaton studied Entomology at Oregon State University and has mostly worked as an Assistant Butterfly Curator for "Butterfly Magic" at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. He has provided insect and spider identification for a project at the University of Massachusetts (Amherst) in 2009 and have worked at the Cincinnati Zoo.
