Join the Bug Club! If you enjoy insect, entomology, nature, or science this club is for you! Through a series of weekly lessons we will be learning all about insects, entomology and arachnids! Each lesson will be posted every Monday by 4:00 p.m. Bug Clubers will receive a kit mailed to their home, containing all the materials for each lesson. Each activity will be paired with an activity. Lessons will be recorded and posted to a private YouTube Chanel for campers to follow along and receive guided help with the activities. At least one lesson per month will be live via Zoom so bug clubers can interact with the instructor and entomologist (still recorded and posted to the YouTube Chanel). You can participate live or on your own schedule! September 14, 21, 28: Intro to the World of Insects, How do Insects Grow?, Make an Insect Collection October 5, 12, 19, 26: What is a Spider?
