Event Details


An annual celebration of bugs!

Backbones are overrated—meet all of our invertebrate friends at this annual celebration of bugs! Stop by the bug zoo to interact with live critters, both native and exotic species. Discover what lives in North Pond with our entomologist, and learn how to pin an insect specimen with our museum collections staff. Test your mettle by eating some delicious bug cooking, and go on a guided bug walk around the Nature Museum.

All ages are welcome—this event is fun for adults, kids, and teens! Light refreshments will be served, beer available for purchase.
