Venture with us into Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens for an eye-opening view into the incredible world of insects. Children will become “bugologists” for the day as we scour the vegetable patch, turn over rocks and logs in the woods, and dip nets into the pond to discover what insects might be living there.  Through games and observations, they’ll experience first-hand some of the unique adaptations of insects and will make a special bug collector to study their subjects up close.
