DBG Bugs & Beer Lecture

For immediate release May 24, 2019

On May 17, the Delaware Botanic Gardens (DBG) opened its gates for the “Bugs & Beer” Lecture by Todd Fritchman at the Dogfish Head Learning Garden.  It was a clear success with 75 visitors and DBG volunteers participating.

Ray Sander, president of Delaware Botanic Gardens (DBG) said, “This event kicks off our 2019 educational program at DBG.  It happened because of the strong support and collaboration between Dogfish Head who is our lead naming rights supporter, and Envirotech who created the wetlands outdoor classroom.  They are our educational mission support team.

Mariah Calagione, co-owner of Dogfish Head said, “We are proud to be partners with DBG and it’s exciting to see the wetlands outdoor classroom in action with a wonderful teacher like Todd.”

Todd Fritchman, owner of Envirotech said, “The constructed wetland has provided a habitat for the growth and development of frogs, toads and multitudes of macro invertebrates such as damsel flies, dragon flies, crustaceans such as crayfish, insect pollinators and much more.”  In short, he said, “This class allowed us to understand the biological diversity of this Living Outdoor Classroom’ and to best understand the ecological significance of the wetland and the biota it supports. “

This class was not just a lecture.  It was a “hands-on” experience with participants taking water samples and observing the creatures living in the wetlands.  Pat Long from Millville, DE said,” I liked the tadpoles swimming in the water.”  Todd observed, “It was clear that inquiry based learning works and profound interest was generated as the participants literally got wet and into the experience.  Their questions began to flow.”

A video of the Bugs and Beer event is available on YouTube at https://youtu.be/iRawpzu_svc.

After class, the visitors took a leisurely stroll through the gardens and Alison Skeel of Kensington, MD said, “The gardens are fantastic and I can’t wait to come back.”

Sheryl Swed, DBG Executive Director, said, “We wish to thank Carol McCloud, DBG Volunteer Coordinator and all the volunteers who worked so hard to get the gardens ready for this event, including planting 1,500 blueberry bushes this past week.  Thank you all.”

The Delaware Community Foundation is excited about the number of people the Garden has the potential to touch.  The Wetland Outdoor Classroom is engaging our young people in the wonders of nature.  It’s also heartening to see all these volunteers working here today.  These dedicated volunteers are themselves being touched by this wonderful project.  The visitors are going to benefit from this same enjoyable experience.  The Delaware Community Foundation is really happy to be part of this great project.”

Our Board strongly believes that DBG should be a giver as well as a receiver.  Today we are the fortunate receiver of a $25,000 capital grant, which will help us to build our Welcome Center.  The DCF grant will be covering a major part of the initial building costs, and DBG will also be covering a large portion of the center’s outfitting cost.”
