The Bug Club: Entomology for Kids!
Have you ever chased Greenbelt Nature Center butterflies, collected fireflies or rolled a log to see what dwelled beneath it? Insects are the largest group of animals on earth with nearly one million different kinds. And, this first meeting will explore what makes a Bug-A-Bug!

The Bug Club is an educational mini-series that explores the anatomy, life-cycles, and natural history of bugs through engaging activities, bug excursions in the Greenbelt, and live insect demos.

Ages 5+. All Bug Club sessions take place at the Greenbelt Nature Center unless otherwise stated. Donations are welcome.
