The Insiders: Bug Nights for citizen scientists

It’s been hyped as “there’s no better place on the globe.”

Now it’s up to you to determine if that’s just crafty advertising or the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Bug Nights – offered by the Upper Merrimack Monitoring Program for the 18th year – began last Wednesday and continue tonight from 6 to 9 at St. Paul’s School. They’re held in the Lindsay Center for Mathematics and Science’s Ecology Lab, Room 123.

And just so you know, you’ll be considered a citizen scientist if you attend. That only falls behind citizen heart surgeon and citizen president as the most prestigious citizen rankings.

The training is free, and all alcohol – denatured preserving alcohol that is – and equipment are provided. The trainings are held most Wednesdays through April. For more information, visit

And for those blues enthusiasts, head over to Hermanos for Poor Howard tonight at 6:30. If enough people show up, his next gig might be under the new name of Rich Howard.
