Insectapalooza: The good, the bad, and the bugly coming up!
Insects – from the good to the bad to the bugly – will be on display at Cornell University during the 8th annual Insectapalooza Insect Fair on Saturday, Oct. 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Comstock Hall on the Cornell University campus. The cost of entry is less than a cup of coffee: $1 per person.
Insectapalooza is an interactive, hands-on experience that features hundreds of live insects, spiders, and other fascinating arthropods. This year there are many new exhibits and popular favorites like the live Butterfly room, Arthropod Zoo, and Pollination room. Insectapalooza is fun and educational for children, teens, and adults of all ages.
The annual, one-day insect fair is hosted by the Department of Entomology at Cornell. "The Good, The Bad, and the Bugly" theme reflects the countless ways that insects interact with people and impact our lives — for better or for worse.
I have attached a poster for your use. We have plenty of parking for cars and buses.
