Bug Club

Bug Club has started back for summer. This one of LittleBit's favorite activities. We are very lucky that our local Parks and Recreation department has many great programs all year round for kids. One of our favorites is Bug Club, they meet once a month at the Wilderness station, in one of the area parks. Each month they learn about the bugs that live in our area. This month there was a bug hunt, you take your bug jar collect bugs and bring them back to the station to identify your finds.

WARNING: There will be pictures of bugs including a spider below.

LittleBit found 5 different bugs on his hunt.
