“BugFest,” the annual open house for the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Department of Entomology, is 1 to 4 p.m. Sept. 24, in Entomology Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
Guests of all ages will be able to tour the research labs and pollinator garden, have pictures taken on a giant bug, see inside of a bee hive and learn about how bees work together, edible insects and more. Entomology professors, staff and students will be on hand to answer questions on all things bug-related.
“This year’s BugFest will feature lots of buggy fun,” said coordinator Lisa Silberman. “There will be fun games and activities for all ages while also providing community members an opportunity to learn about important issues such as GMOs, bedbugs, ants, flies and new pest species in Nebraska.”
Parking is available north of the East Union. For more information, contact Silberman at email@example.com or 402-472-3416.
