Family Program: Insect Mouth Part Mayhem (Thu. 27 Jul, 2017 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm)

Meet at the BFEC Resource Center.  Eek!  Does it bite?!  We share our planet with over 1 million different types of insects.  In spite of this huge variety, insects have only four common ways of chowing down (on us and on their food).  During this program, we will spend some time catching insects and examining their mouthparts.  Join us to discover the world of insects!  No registration necessary.
