Join an Audubon naturalist and search for six-legged friends! Try your hand at using a net to comb the edge of the meadow, catching grasshoppers, milkweed bugs, butterflies and more. We will observe insects in bug boxes, use magnifying glasses and field guides to identify them and take a peek at some of our awesome insect biofacts!
Come dressed in sturdy shoes, long pants, hats, and wear sunscreen. Adults must accompany children. Our program is weather dependent.
Program Fee: $5/member child, $7/non-member child. Ages: 4+. Register online through the events calendar at this link here. Note: indicating attendance on Meetup or Facebook does not reserve your spot. Don’t be disappointed, please register early with ASRI. Last possible date to register is August 16th by 5pm.
