o   Do you love bugs? Good, because insects are everywhere and they are the largest animal group--about 85% of all known animals in the world are arthropods. These fascinating creatures will amaze you when you get a chance to study them up close! Campers will learn about arthropod natural history and biodiversity through a series of fun projects and activities, including experiments and dissections. We will get up close and personal with some real live creepy-crawlies! Each participant will get their very own live arthropod to take home.
