"Bug Night" is tonight at 8:00 at Ijams Nature Center. Children and their families will go to "buggy stations" on the center grounds to catch some critters. Would-be bug catchers should bring a plastic container with a lid for each bug they think they'll be grabbing and putting in a contest for "bug beauty" and "less than beauty."
No glass containers.
$5 for Ijams members and $8 for non-members.
