Come face to antennae with some of the world’s most misunderstood and fascinating animals with a BioPark entomologist. Registration required.

Go backstage at the Botanic Garden's BUGarium, and meet thousands of bugs up close.

Come face to antennae with some of the world’s most misunderstood (and most fascinating!) animals. Your adventure, led by a BioPark entomologist, takes place in the BUGarium’s Rearing Lab. Here, you’ll meet arthropods in all stages of life and learn how staff care for them. You’ll even get to touch or hold a few bugs, so don’t forget your camera! Before you go, you may get to feed a bug or two, and you’ll find out why we can’t live without these many-legged creatures.

Tours take place on the last Saturday of the month and last approximately one hour. All proceeds benefit the BUGarium.$55-70 per person, ages 8 and up. Pre-registration is required.
