For the past seven years, the Missoula Butterfly House and Insectarium has been compiling insect and arthropod photos as part of its weekly What’s Buzzin’ report – highlighting some of the species currently out and about in western Montana. Glenn Marangelo will share photos and information about some of the incredible species that have been documented as part of this popular seasonal account. If you’ve ever wondered “what that bug was” in your backyard or while out on a hike in the backcountry, this may answer some of your burning insect identification questions.
Glenn Marangelo: Originally from NJ, Glenn has called Missoula, MT home since 1995. He has worked as a non-profit fundraiser ever since moving to Missoula, having worked with Five Valleys Land Trust and Wilderness Watch, among other positions. In 2009 he helped found the Missoula Butterfly House and Insectarium (MBHI) and in mid 2016 became the organization’s first Development Director. In addition to fundraising, Glenn makes insect-filled visits on Montana Public Radio’s Pea Green Boat, contributes to MBHI’s What’s Buzzin’ reports, writes the organization’s Bug Bytes podcast, and loves to “talk bugs”. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, fishing, hunting, birding …and of course, observing and learning about insects.
