Learn why doing the “bug stomp” shouldn’t be the first choice when meeting an insect. Meeting at the Eagle Marsh barn (6801 Engle Road, Fort Wayne), we will divide into small groups and move between stations along the trails of Eagle Marsh to learn about the important roles insects play in our ecosystem. Where do insects live? What do they eat and how do they talk to each other? And ultimately, what makes an insect…an insect? All these questions answered and more, on this exploratory experience at the marsh. Please dress for the weather, boots are recommended. This event is fun for children ages 3 to 5 with a responsible adult.
