Bug Me If You Can
"Bug me if you can," it was called, the kind of kids' activity in the newly created Young Macnamara group. On August 15 we set out on an insect investigation in local fields. Kids first learned about the parts of typical insects and what makes these tiny creatures important to our natural world and then took their new knowledge for a close look at insects and other creatures in their habitats. Highlights included a black-and-yellow Argiope spider, several white-faced dragonflies, and a Milbert's Tortoiseshell butterfly.
