Insectival! at the County Museum
Redlands, CA – What kind of insect can live up to 50 years? Which bugs taste with their feet? And how many “knees” do spiders have? Find out the answers as you encounter these insects at the “Insectival!” at the San Bernardino County Museum on Saturday, March 12 from 9am to 5pm. This program is included in paid museum admission.
“It is going to be one fun creepy crawly day at the Insectival,” said Museum Educator Nancy Kirkwood. “Families will be able to explore the fascinating world of insects by meeting live bugs up close and personal. Children can also enjoy insect games, cockroach races, face-painting, story-telling, making crafts to bring home, and more.”
At 11am and 2pm, visitors can learn “All About Bugs” and meet many live critters. At 12:15 and 3:15pm, kids will be invited to join the “Insect Olympics,” and compare their abilities, such as jumping and carrying, to what different types of bugs can do. Parents will also want to hear the short presentation about “Bed Bugs” at 1pm.
