Have you ever wondered how life would be if you were a bug in the city? Well wonder no more! Come enjoy a day filled with fun and knowledge this weekend!

The Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens brings ‘A Bugs Life in the City: The Often Unseen Biodiversity that Surrounds Us and Why It Matters’ to The Ohio State University School of Environment and Natural Resources (2021 Coffey Road, 210 Kottman Hall, Columbus) this Saturday Apr 28 from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

The Gardiner Lab studies vacant land as a conservation habitat for arthropods. Participants will learn of our research findings and view the rich fauna found within vacant lots. Attendees will also learn about the Ohio Bee Atlas and how to participate in bee citizen science programs.

The cost for this educational and exhilarating experience is only $30 (students are $20) which includes a light breakfast, boxed lunch, citizen scientist supplies and predatory insect ID card. Email Mary Gardiner at gardiner.29@osu.edu to register!
