‘Where did the bugs go?’ program at Twin Lakes

Published 7:36 am Friday, February 12, 2016

Wintertime is a season of cold temperatures, frozen precipitation and leafless trees.  Although cold temperatures often keep us inside, some rejoice because they can enjoy the outdoors without bugs. Have you ever wondered, where did the bugs go?

On Saturday at 11 a.m., join park ranger Jack Wagstaff at Twin Lakes State Park to discover what happens to the insects during the winter months. Sometimes allowing themselves to freeze completely or even traveling thousands of miles, insects have amazing adaptations that help them survive frigid temperatures of winter. After a short talk, participants will search for signs of insects and create insects of their own using construction paper and other supplies.

Please dress warmly as the program will be given outdoors. Meet at the picnic shelter located near the Cedar Crest Conference Center. The shelter has fireplaces attached that will be lit during the program.
