Coastal Children’s Museum to host insect workshop for kids
ROCKLAND — The Coastal Children's Museum, located at 75 Mechanic Street in Rockland, is hosting a workshop for kids all about bugs. Join entomologist Karen Coluzzi in the museum's Butterfly Garden on Friday, July 13 at 11 a.m. to learn about the bugs and insects found in the garden.
Kids will explore the garden looking for some of the bugs that call our gardens home and help keep them healthy and beautiful.
Karen Coluzzi is an entomologist with the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry. She runs the CAPS (Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey) program, which focuses on surveying for harmful exotic and invasive plant pests. While Karen's work focuses on some pests that are harmful to plants, she wants to emphasize to kids that most of the bugs we find in our backyards are actually good for our gardens!
This workshop is included in the price of admission and free for members. Suggested ages 4 & up, but all ages welcome to join in the fun. The Coastal Children's Museum's summer hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
