Bug out! Merryspring Nature Center will host a free bug safari for children and families Thursday, Aug. 14, at 11 a.m.

In this free program, children will have the opportunity to roam the Merryspring grounds looking for and identifying insects. A handful of nets will be provided, as well as insect cages and hand lenses. A special emphasis will be placed on native pollinators. Children should dress in weather appropriate clothing for this event.

This program is part of a series of Free Family Programs at Merryspring. Free Family Programs take place every other Thursday throughout July and August. No sign up is required.
