Family bug class and hunt at Graham Oaks

Saturday, Aug 6, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Summer time is bug time. Insects and other arthropods are busy everywhere, which is why Bug Fest is every August. This program for all “bugsters” ages 6 and up introduces ways to make sense out of the vast diversity of arthropods – insects, spiders, crustaceans, millipedes and centipedes. Then it’s time to go hunt for them. Carefully and humanely catch live bugs at Graham Oaks, and then bring them to Arthropod Headquarters and try to figure out what they all are. Can you do it? Metro naturalist and Bug Fest creator James Davis heads up Metro’s volunteer bugster team. All specimens returned to their habitat. Meet under the picnic shelter at the Gateway Plaza Trailhead. Free for children under 18. Registration and payment of $6 per adult or $11 per family required in advance; call 503-797-1650 option 2. Hosted by Metro
