Insects & Insectivores Night at the Museum!

This event will feature our collection of over 4,000 pinned insects -- along with the plants they pollinate, and the organisms that eat them! You can expect to see bugs, bats, birds, moles, hedgehogs, and even some carnivorous plants! We will also feature herbarium specimens of native plants, and their co-evolution with local insects. Come learn about the role insects play in ecosystems, while getting up-close and personal with real museum artifacts.

Kid's Activity - Come build a bug out of re-useable materials with the EnviroChallengers and learn the anatomy of an insect! 

Live Animals -  You can expect to see live animals and plants including Venus fly traps, tarantulas, and aquatic nymphs! 

This event is free and family-friendly! Join us April 9, 2014 from 6 - 7:30 p.m. at the University of Puget Sound Campus (located at 1500 N Warner St, Tacoma, WA 98416) in Thompson Hall room 295.
