Hotels for Bugs and Other Adventures at Discovery Days

Our Discovery Days group today had a blast learning about insects! We started our exploration with a quick tutorial with Kimberly before heading outside to have a go at catching bugs by sweeping through the tall grass with our hooped fabric bug catchers. 

After looking down into the sack attached to the hoop, we carefully transferred any bugs into insect observing boxes for a closer look. 

We painted terra cotta pots and collected natural materials that we felt would make a bug feel like they were on vacation that we then placed inside the pots. Our "bug hotels" came home with us (minus the bugs hopefully!)

It was a fun morning! We hope you can join us next Thursday for the next session of Discovery Days, which takes place every Thursday in the summer from 10am-12pm.
