Insect Insanity at the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum

As every summer, the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum is offering again its popular Saturday Night events. This Saturday evening will be all about insects. There will be talks in the Theater and exhibits of life bugs in the Baldwin Building next door. There will be huge moths, shiny beetles, endless millipedes and attractive centipedes.

Here is the program for Saturday evening:
