Go on a “Spooky Bug Hunt” in University Circle Area

Sun 10/18 @ 1-3PM

While many people think bugs are icky, many insects are extremely beneficial — and they come in a staggering array of sizes, shapes and colors. Make sure your kids think bugs are more interesting than icky by coming down to Wade Oval for the Cleveland Museum of Natural History’s Spooky Big Hunt.

There families can participate in looking for as many varieties as they can find in Wade Oval and the nearby Doan Brook area and figure out which type of environment has the most diverse insect population. Naturalists will lead the group in exploring under rocks, in pools and in open water, and invite participants to make guesses as to which is the most prolific insect habitat. The group will also do a water quality monitoring test and learn how to take better care of our freshwater resources.

There will be mud (and the program is rain or shine) so dress appropriately.
