We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

It’s time for a good ol’ bug hunt! Did you know that insects are the largest group of animals? It’s true! About 75 percent of all the world’s animals are insects. During this April Vacation bug scavenger hunt, we invite you to bring your buddies to the Stevens-Coolidge Place or team up with new friends met on the property. Each group of explorers will be given field note handouts on which to record their observations and a magnifying glass-topped bug jar for getting a better look at our tiny friends in the gardens. What will you find today?

Creepy Crawly refreshments provided. All bugs will be returned to their natural habitat. Suggested for ages 6-10 or with assistance of adult.

We encourage participants to pack a picnic for the afternoon and continue their visit after the program has concluded.

Homework: Many insects rely on flowering plants for food. And many flowering plants rely on insects for pollination to spread and grow. Can you think of a way to add more flowering plants to your yard, porch or windowsill?
