Exploratorium After Dark Landscape Conversations
April 8 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Hurray! The bugs are back! Check out the incredible extravaganza of insects at the Randall Museum’s popular Bug Day event celebrating everything insect with hands-on science and art activities, games, live music, movies and more.
Join in the insect-inspired fun and learn how important these little creatures are to the earth and to our survival here. Kids and their families can make their own fabulous bug-related crafts to take home, see and touch live exotic insects, take a scientific look at insects through microscopes, compete in the Insect Olympics, and perhaps even EAT a bug or two. New this year, the Randall is introducing the Bug Costume contest – complete with celebrity judging.
The San Francisco Beekeepers Association will have a hive of live honeybees on display. Kids can watch beekeepers at work and learn about these amazing pollinators, plus there will be honey collected from hives all over the city and other bee-made products for sale.
Other participating community members include California Native Plant Society, San Francisco Zoo, Oakland Zoo, Tree Frog Treks, San Francisco Microscopical Society, and Don Bugito Edible Bugs.
The CNPS Yerba Buena Chapter will be tabling at this event!
