You are invited to join Museum staff and volunteers for our September “Green” Challenge…Arthropod Conservation in honor of BugFest! This challenge is a way to learn how you can take actions in your daily life to help our buggy friends. Examples of actions are:
- Plant native plants to sustain native arthropods
- Attend a BugFest program
- Contribute an arthropod to iNaturalist
- Read a book about bugs (reading list included!)
- Don’t spray pesticides or herbicides
Each action you take gives you points…the more actions, the more points! At the end of the month, the person with the most points will win a free BugFest t-shirt! Participants are also invited to a special Google Chatroom so we can all share our photos and our thoughts about how we can take action to save the bugs – some of the most important animals on the planet!
If you would like to participate, email Kari Wouk at email@example.com.
