Insectival this weekend

I'll be out of town at emm... a nerd event known as DrupalCamp, so Bob B. I think you need to take some photos of the butterfly release. ;-)

You’re invited to Insect-ival at The State Botanical Garden of Georgia 2450 South Milledge Avenue Athens, GA

Saturday, September 19
9:30am – 12:30pm
Visitor Center & Conservatory
$3 per person; $10 maximum per family
Children under 2 years of age admitted free

Join us for this creepy, crawly, and definitely fun Family Festival. Discovery stations, roach and beetle races, puppet shows and lots of live insects highlight this year’s event. Children can complete a series of discovery station activities to receive a special insect prize. At 11:00am we will host a butterfly release on the lawn of the International Garden. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to view dozens of native butterflies flap their wings above your head. These native butterflies are reared locally and sustainably. Insect-ival is sponsored by the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, UGA Lund Club, UGA Department of Entomology, and the Georgia Museum of Natural History.
