IJAMS Summer Bug Safari

Join us for a Bug Safari! Ijams naturalist Stephen Lyn Bales will be your guide for this fun and lighthearted look at some of the creepy crawlies that live in East Tennessee. Who’s an insect and who’s not? Which critters have 6 legs, 8 legs, or more? We’ll find answers to these and lots of other questions as we search for butterflies, spiders, dragonflies, centipedes, beetles, and other invertebrates in the meadows around Ijams Nature Center. To add to the fun, we’ll have a contest for the biggest bug, smallest bug, ugliest bug, and prettiest bug. We’ll even have prizes for anyone that catches a few of the Buggy Most Wanted. We’ll provide nets and jars for some serious, hands-on, catch-and-release bug hunting.

The fee for this program is $8- everyone over the age of 2 MUST have a ticket. For more information, including how to regiter, visit us online at: http://ijams.org/events/ijams-family-wildlife-series-summer-bug-safari/
