Find out what the buzz is all about! Join us for BugFest, our annual celebration of insects and their relatives, on Saturday, September 20 at the Bernheim Visitor Center from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Children and their families will go buggy exploring live critters at our insect zoo, in our butterfly pavilion, and at our naturalist-led Discovery Stations. Bug-themed crafts and games, for all ages, will also be offered throughout the day.
Other BugFest favorites, including guided insect safaris, the Parade of Bugs (costumes encouraged!), and our Eat-a-Bug program at the Nitty-Gritty Café (chocolate-covered crickets, anyone?), are scheduled to take place on the hour or half-hour:
While there is no cost to participate in BugFest, the $5 per car weekend environmental impact fee will be charged for non-members to enter Bernheim; members are always free.
