In addition to regular tours of the UAIC, museum staff often provide talks in the community about the collection, our native insect fauna and research going on at the University of Arizona. Many of these talks are combined with blacklighting events. Contact Wendy Moore or Gene Hall for more information.  Carl Olson, who retired in 2013, provided this service to the community for years to the following audiences:
