Junior Entomologists 2019

During this program children (and their parents. ) will learn all about the wonders of insects. In the sky and under water, Junior Entomologists will explore the local environment using nets, microscopes, field guides, and other tools that scientists use. Part of each program is spent indoors learning about the topic of the month. Then we will go outdoors for a buggy activity. Appropriate shoes are required and please dress for the weather. Note: These programs are designed for families with children in grades 1 through 6. At least 1 adult must accompany each family of children during this program, with no more than two adults accompanying each family. We cannot accommodate any younger children who are not currently in 1st grade. This includes the younger siblings of any registered 1st-6th grade participant, as well as any toddlers or babies in arms, carriers, slings or strollers.

Classes take place one Sunday per month from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. Register for each class separately, accompanying adults must also register.  June 23: Eat or Be Eaten What kinds of animals eat insects?
