***Traveling Bug Camp:
($425 plus mileage) 2-hour bug camp for up to 30 participants (requires 2 volunteers from location for camper/adult ratio). Ages 1st grade and up.
Campers will dive deep into the world of arthropods that are found in their own outdoor spaces! We will explore the local outdoor space on a guided bug hunt, collect and identify insects and release them back into the wild. Campers will go home with an Insect Zoo drawstring backpack and a renewed (or new) appreciation for our multilegged friends. You can add on a 1-hour display for an additional $200 for campers and the public. PLEASE NOTE: Availability is limited for these camps. Ideas for outdoor spaces include: Pollinator gardens, prairies, vegetable gardens, urban gardens, wooded areas, water! Collecting area must be within walking distance. More details and information to give to participants, will be provided at a later date.
Love our Earth, Love our Bugs:
($250 plus mileage) 1-hour display (No limit on participants). 2-hours for $400
Invite your whole town to check out over 100 species of living arthropods, on display in your own space! Knowledgeable Insect Zoo staff will talk about why our multi-legged friends are important for a healthy Earth, how you can help them in your own outdoor spaces, and how you can Spread the Bug Love! Many hands-on opportunities to handle millipedes, beetles, walking sticks and more! Bring in your photos of bugs to be identified or even the bug itself!
The Insect Zoo can visit up to 3 locations in one day! Those locations near each other, who share a day, will split the total mileage.
