Bugs rule at this unusual annual event hosted by Rutgers Master Gardeners of Mercer County. Those bug-loving gardeners promise an afternoon of games and activities for children that highlight the importance of bugs in our lives and teaches children (and their parents) about the incredible and often beautiful insects common to the Northeast.

Activities include:

  • Insect Olympics
  • Bugs in water
  • Butterfly births
  • Puppet show
  • Bugs galore (insect inspection and handling)
  • Bee dance
  • Insect hunt
