GC:  Awesome Arthropods

Saturday, April 28, 11:00am – 1:00pm

What is an arthropod?  Are all arthropods ‘bugs’? We will learn what an arthropod is and about the different kinds found around here and afar. Join us as we learn about insects, arachnids, and more! Create your own “awesome arthropod” to take home. Then visit our Butterfly Exhibit and see some amazing live butterflies and other arthropods up close!
