Aspiring entomologists are invited to San Diego Botanic Garden’s Insect Festival on Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event features thousands of fascinating creepy-crawlies, including live lizards, snakes and the famous Madagascar hissing cockroaches!
Bug collecting, interactive insect arts and crafts, as well as tasty cooked mealworm larva – in various flavors including mesquite, teriyaki and barbecue – are just some of the engaging activities scheduled at the Festival. Local bug experts will be available for questions and more than 20 educational booths will instruct and entertain children and adults alike. For more information, visit sdbgarden.org/insect.htm.
