InsectBlitz. UC Elkus Ranch. September 12-14, 2014. HALF MOON BAY, CA. Twelve ISMC'ers descended upon Elkus Ranch to help with its first ever InsectBlitz. There were representatives from UC Cooperative Extension, The Essig Museum of Entomology, 4H, and many other groups. Blitzers collected, mounted and photographed while resisting the temptation to feed chickens, hang out with bulls and tease the goats.
