Creepy Crawly BUGS!

 
Bugs and arachnids are right up our alley! Come learn the difference between insects and arachnids while meeting our hissing roaches, millipede, tarantulas, glow in the dark scorpions and even some of our animals that eat bugs! Put your newfound knowledge to the test with a bug race game - determine if your creepy crawlies are an insect or an arachnid and place them in the right category in a race against time! AND if any scouts are feeling a little adventurous- they can try a flavored edible mealworm or cricket too!!

“Hi,
I just wanted to let you all know that my girl scout troop had a great time on Saturday morning. Aimee was absolutely fantastic with the girls. I imagine you will be seeing lots of my scouts again for other activities that you sponsor too. Thanks again and I'll be back in another year for my younger daughters troop.”
