There is a class called "Introduction to Beetles" that will be given in
August.  It's listed in the 1999-2000 catalog of the North Cascades
Institute.  The description mentions that beetles are the most numerous
animals on earth.

asked what his studies of nature revealed about God, he replied, "An
inordinate fondness for beetles."
