    Jim Davis, I have been watching the zoom webinars by UF on Fridays at 1 p.m. and really wanted to see the one on birds this past Friday but could not connect. You had promoted these on April 6 on the Entomology FB page. I know they changed the zoom meeting account number the Friday before but neither the new or the old meeting number worked. Can you help me? Also is there as way to still watch what I missed on the bird program? Anyone’s assistance would be be appreciated! The new zoom meeting number I had was 441950330 The original number was 92836621685

  4. Jim,

    Thanks for such an informative session about poisonous snakes last Friday! It was my first Zoom experience. Will that session and What’s Biting Me? be on YouTube?
    Also, I did not receive the additional resources in my email (address in field below).
    And where can I purchase the snake playing cards?

    Thanks again for a phenomenal presentation!
