Are you alive? Thank a bug! As predators, prey, food sources (yes—even for people), pollinators of our food crops, drivers of nearly all food chains, scavengers, and decomposers—bugs rule the world! Come to our Bug Blitz and explore and celebrate the world of interesting insects. Daytime bug activities are 4-8 pm. Evening bug activities are 8:30-10:30 pm. This is a come-and-go event so stop by any time! Daytime activities will include guided habitat explorations to catch bugs, learning stations on how to identify insects (are all bugs insects?), and insect challenges for prizes and a drawing. At night, we’ll set up our blacklight, set out moth bait, and observe fireflies and other nighttime insects. It will be Bug Blitz Blowout! No registration required. All ages Kevin Lohraff
