What happens when you mix local beers and a fascinating expert bug lecturer? You get the Missoula Butterfly House & Insectarium’s evening lecture series: “Bugs and Brews”! Every month we will have a new expert lecturer discuss a fascinating topic relating to bugs. Some of our past talks have been on Animal Weapons, Pests, Native Bees, Sea Spiders and more! We want to give a huge THANK YOU to our primary sponsor of our unique lecture series: Draught Works!

This event usually sells out in advance, so be sure to purchase your tickets online ahead of time!

January: Learning to See

This month, join us for a screening of the Jake Oelman film Learning to See: the world of insects. 

Follow one man’s transformational journey to find the Amazon’s strangest creatures. In the early 90s, Robert Oelman left his career in psychology to pursue photography.

On his journeys through the Amazon Basin, he began taking striking photographs of undiscovered insects.

After twenty years of traveling, searching and photographing, his quest culminated with a New York City gallery showing.
