Description:
Summertime is a great time to investigate the big world of bugs! Get introduced to our local pollinators, decomposers, flyers and crawlers to better understand the amazing services they provide to us.

Join in on an adventure to discover the insects of Isle a la Cache as we use sweep nets and bug boxes to temporarily catch and observe these helpful critters.

This program includes an introduction to bugs and a chance to put your new found knowledge to the test. Equipment is provided but you are also welcome to bring your own net. All insects will be released at the end of the program.

Registration is required by calling 815.886.1467 by Thursday, June 22.

This program will take place on paved paths or natural surfaces across uneven terrain. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should mention their request when registering, or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
