Family Nature Explorers: Bug bonanza at Graham Oaks, Jul. 21st

This Saturday is the next in Metro’s Family Nature Explorers outings, focusing on bugs at Graham Oaks Nature Park () in Wilsonville. We’re not able to attend, but they do have more spaces to fill. It is from 10am to 1pm, cost is $11 per family (children 4 and up, bring a sack lunch), and you can register here.

Search for insects, spiders, millipedes and centipedes in Graham Oaks Nature Parks’ meadows, wetlands and forests. Learn to safely and carefully catch examples for closer examination, then release them unharmed. Become familiar with the best books to use to figure out who lives in your own yard and neighborhood. Learn which insects to leave alone!

Family Nature Explorers brings kids and adults together for open-ended nature exploration in Metro natural areas. Families meet other families with the same interests in nature and the outdoors. Kids meet other kids who love to touch, smell and study all things natural. Led by Metro naturalists and volunteers, each adventure explores a special theme – but trip leaders seize the moment when nature presents any unexpected learning opportunity.
