Announcing: THE 1ST ARIZONA INSECT FESTIVAL
The Entomologists at the University of Arizona are proud to present the first ever Arizona Insect Festival! Bring the whole family out to the UA Mall for an interactive learning experience about insects in our ecosystem. We promise a fantastic day of facts and fun!
There will be tents full of live insects and beautiful displays of insect specimens arranged to highlight and explain many different biological principles.
Knowledgeable people, scientists, teachers, students, and enthusiastic hobby entomologists.
Organizations that promote interest and understanding of insects and their natural world like SASI and Tucson Botanical Gardens.
We hare planning Insect Olympics and Rodeos, kids can make their own bugs, bugs can be tasted, photographed, held and admired...
As the program takes shape I will update this blog, and you can also find us on facebook.
