About the Event

Audience: Families with elementary and middle schoolers (Ages 5-13)

Prepare to venture to a strange world inhabited by alien creatures! No, not Mars—you and an Ijams naturalist will enter the amazing world of insects. These creatures hide in every habitat at Ijams, and we’re going to find them all. You’ll learn to net, sweep, and literally beat the bushes for every insect you can imagine, as well as learn to identify key insect characteristics and how insects adapt depending on their habitat. Nets and collection boxes will be provided. All insects will be released at the end of the program.

The cost for this program is $8 per person or get a family four-pack of tickets for $28.

Insects tend to be most active during the heat of the day and participants will be capturing insects in a meadow. Shade will be limited, so prepare to be warm. Participants should wear closed-toed shoes and bring sunscreen, water, hats and sunglasses.

This program will meet at the Ijams Visitor Center.

No walk-ins will be accepted.
