Event details

Spring means bugs are back! Join a naturalist to explore the woods around Hidden Oaks Nature Center in search of the first bugs of spring. Learn about some of the more commonly seen insects and why they are important. Once we harness some inspiration, we’ll get building with LEGO.

The strong STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) aspect will be our little secret as we build our insect critters. LEGO builds will be on display for the entire month!
