Fun Bug Investigating

Rising entomologist, Cali Granger, provided an insect program for children ages 8-11 at the Huston-Brumbaugh Nature Center on August 3, 2011.  Cali taught the children about the basic anatomy of insects and with that knowledge each participant crafted their own insect.  The participants also learned simple characteristics about several major groups of insects so they had a basis on which to identify the insects they caught in the field.
