2017 Bug Club- We Love Bugs! 

In Bug Club, we explore the world of insects and other arthropods and share our appreciation for these fascinating animals! This year, Bug Club will focus on caring about bugs! We will explore how bugs care for each other, how zoos and conservation scientists care for bugs, and how we can all help bugs every day. We’ll choose some of our favorite bugs and take conservation action to help them. Join other bug enthusiasts to learn and share about bugs through buggy crafts, snacks and outdoor explorations. Bug Club meets 10:00 a.m. – noon generally on the fourth Sunday of every month year round.
