Carnegie Museum to host Bug TV at Nara Nature Park July 30

HOUGHTON -- The Carnegie Museum has teamed up with the Nara Nature Park and created a Summer Science Natural History program. From 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, July 30, the team will present Bug TV, the second in their series of explorations of Plants and Pollinators.

There is no fee for the program, but space is limited, so please email history@cityofhoughton.com or call 482-7140 to reserve your spot. As programs are weather dependent, please remember to leave contact information so we can reach you in case of cancellation, postponement, or change of location! All ages are welcome, but children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

Meet at the Nara Trail Chalet to watch bugs in action! Be there any time after 9 p.m. for Jim Bess' preview of insect specimens to show you what to look for. Then, after dark, with the help of a white sheet and light, participants will watch all kinds of flying insects and learn what they are, what they like to eat, and why nighttime is the right time to see them! Highly recommend wearing mosquito repellant and bringing a flashlight; a blanket and/or folding chair may be useful if the group stays in one place.
