The Amazing Mantis (Virtual Program)

The Praying Mantis is a long, slender, curious looking fellow that startles the unsuspecting gardener. It's alien-looking features are a put-off to many, but a lot of people find them very interesting and it is one of my favorite insects. Join a Park Naturalist via Skype for Business to learn a little more about this insect. This program is free. Registration is required. Please register by emailing John Laskos at jlaskos@pa.gov. Once registered, you will recieve a link to join this virtual program.

Programming is subject to modification or cancellation at the discretion of park staff. If you need an accommodation to participate in Park activities due to a disability, please contact Presque Isle State Park at 814-833-7424 to make arrangements for your visit. With at least three days’ notice, interpreters for people who are deaf or hard of hearing are available for educational programs. Please call the Erie ASL Interpreters’ Office at (814) 806-2511 for more information about this service.
