LENOX -- Insect Safari, sponsored by Berkshire Sanctuaries, will be held today from 10 a.m. to noon at Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary.

Instructor Rene Laubach, director of Berkshire Wildlife Sanctuaries, will lead the safari.

The adventure is suitable for children ages 8-16. Adults are $5 for members; $7 for non-membes. Children are $3 for members; $4 for non-members.

One doesn't need to travel to the Serengeti Plains or the Brazilian rain forest to discover and observe a tremendous diversity of life. Fields, wetlands and forests hold a splendid and truly amazing array of insects.

Among the most active and colorful are butterflies. Their lesser-known cousin, the moth, are camouflage experts in order to evade predators.

This program is sure to change your opinion of insects! Registration not required.
