July is here and the winged insects are all around the park.
Joshua Schutte has been coming to Ijams and taking photos every season since 2008. Here's a few he took on a recent visit. Hope you enjoy them.
And don't forget these programs:
Friday, July 13, 8 pm
FAMILY PROGRAM: Bug Night
Join us for a chance to catch bugs and show off their charms with some of Ijams own bug-enthusiasts! We'll be going out into the park to buggy stations to catch some critters and to bring 'em back alive to the visitor center for our Bug Beauty and Less-than-Beauty Contests. Bring a plastic container with a lid for each bug you want to put on display. No glass containers please. This program is $5 for members and $8 for non-members. Please call 577-4717, ext. 110 to register. Leaders: Peg Beute and Kara Remington
