Story of Impact

Whitney Cranshaw

Entomology Professor Whitney Cranshaw spent his career making sure he has reserved a seat at the table for all Coloradoans who question the critters in their fields, garages, and backyards. A good deal of phobias are attached to insects—from spiders to miller moths—and Cranshaw delights in educating the public about those insects’ back stories.
