Backyard Bugs

E. O. Wilson described invertebrates as “the little things that run the world”. Believe it or not, we have approximately 12,500 insects and 750 spider species in Florida! Join Invertebrate Zoologist, Dave Almquist, and his assistant Lukas, to explore why insects and other “bugs” are so important to our ecosystems. A short power point presentation inside will be followed by close-up examination of some live specimens and a “bug” hunt expedition on nursery grounds. While this is mainly geared towards school-age children–families, adults, naturalists and photographers are also welcome and will enjoy this experience.

$3.00 (adults)   $1.50 (school-age children)
