Over the last year, the idea of a summer meeting of the Eastern Branch was conceived to complement the annual Branch meeting in early spring as a way to provide a more informal setting for interactions among members within a natural setting. A committee was formed to develop the idea, and our first summer meeting will be held in northern Virginia over the second weekend in September, 2022, at the Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center near Front Royal. The Center will provide food and lodging from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, and will support a number of activities inside and outside. Our goal is to bring entomologists together, young and old, to share our science and to provide learning (and collecting) opportunities in the field. We hope that the meeting will continue into the future at other field-oriented locations across the Branch. Learn more.
