Dear Parhymers,

See the appended announcement for our upcoming HYM Course.


Mike Gates

To Prospective Participants:

We are pleased to announce the fifth offering of HYM Course (http://hymcourse.org/), scheduled for August 17–23, 2014 at the Eagle Hill Institute, Steuben, Maine, U.S.A. (http://www.eaglehill.us/).

The main objective of HYM Course is to provide participants with knowledge and experience in identifying parasitic and predatory wasps, sawflies, wood wasps, bees, and ants. Information on natural history is also presented, and that information is reinforced with fieldwork. Techniques used to collect, rear, preserve, and curate specimens are presented in a hands-on manner to allow participants to learn directly by doing.

The course is limited to 25 participants. Please visit the HYM Course website (http://hymcourse.org/) for details, including information on how to apply, costs for taking the course, and logistics of travel. Applications are due March 21, 2014.

We look forward to seeing you in Maine!
