Aschenbrenners to share their love of butterflies and bugs at Albert City Public Library

Ben Aschenbrenner with his butterfly and bug collection.

Keri Aschenbrenner started hunting with her uncle Tim in grade school along with several of her cousins. He was a serious collector. When Tim moved from Sioux City to Massachusetts he donated his collection to Iowa State. Keri's mother always had her collection hanging in their home when she was growing up.
