Come early and participate in one of the optional field trips where Integrated Pest Management practices-and their associated challenges-will be showcased. Space is limited. Sign up available during registration.

Field Trip A: "Butterfly Pavilion Behind the Scenes Tour”

Cost: TBD

Capacity: 25

Visit Colorado’s premier invertebrate zoo!  An experienced guide will take you through the exhibits and behind-the-scenes areas, giving your group the ‘ins and outs,’ animal knowledge, and personal attention that they may not experience on their own. See a honeybee hive, touch sea stars and horseshoe crabs, and hold our Chilean rose-hair tarantula, Rosie! Walk amongst the butterflies in our fully immersive rainforest exhibit, and see our behind-the-scenes areas where animal care staff work on invertebrate research and conservation.

Tour leaves the hotel Monday at 1:00 p.m. with expected return at 4:00 p.m. Snacks and bottled water provided.


Information about additional field trips will be added soon. Please check back.


If you will be going on any of the trips, we encourage you to take pictures and poster them on social media. Tag our Facebook or Twitter pages (@IPMSymposium), and use the hashtag #IPMSymp2022.
