The Wonders of Harvester Ants

July 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

In arid grasslands and deserts throughout North and South America, the most abundant insects are harvester ants.  These large and conspicuous ant species feed on seeds, which they harvest directly from plants and store in their nests. Unlike most species of ants, members of a single colony are not closely related to each other; each colony is genetically diverse.
