Anatomy of a Valentine: Dinner and Dissection
You’re gonna <3 this! This Valentine’s weekend, Meddling with Nature, and GOODS on Main are teaming up for an evening of dining, dissection, and drinks. Why give a heart shaped box of chocolates, when you can show them what shapes and makes that ticker tick! Your evening begins with a hands-on heartfelt dissection where you, our very special guests, are encouraged to “see with your own eyes and touch with your own hands”. We then wind down with a casual discussion over a lovely heart inspired meal. No worries! There will be wine, gloves and sanitizer – because any decent ‘heart to heart’ always gets a little messy. Come curious, hungry and thirsty; paired or single this will be a Valentine’s Day you and your special someone won’t forget!

Entomology DIY Workshop
Cicadas and scarabs and weevils OH MY! Have you ever fantasized about starting your own insect mount collection but just don’t know where to start? It’s as simple as your own backyard, some basic household supplies, and a little insect “know how”.
Jeremy Johnson, founder of Meddling with Nature, will show you the ins and outs of preserving, mounting and displaying these backyard treasures. Meddlers big and small, armed with their new found knowledge, will enjoy this DIY opportunity to mount and take home their very own large exotic specimen.
