The Ozarks Bug Crawl at Historic Cane Hill

As a part of our ongoing Habitat exhibition, Historic Cane Hill is offering everyone the chance to get up close and personal with the crawling, creeping, floating, and fluttering life of the Ozarks!

In case you haven’t noticed, the bugs are out and about in Northwest Arkansas, and Austin Jones is loving it! Austin is a lifelong bug enthusiast, so obviously he is now a Professor of Entomology at the University of Arkansas. He will be kind enough to show us all the incredible variety of insects to be found in our neck of the woods… and fields and meadows and streams and wherever else bugs can be found. Then you and your team will go out and find them for a chance to win some swag and add to the Historic Cane Hill bug collection!

After the Crawl, Dr. Jones will stick around for a quick tutorial on how to preserve and pin specimens, and all are welcome!

Whether you’ve always been creeped out by bugs and just wanted to get to know them a little better or you have a kid with a pet roly-poly or you yourself are a certified aphid addict, this event is for everyone, so come to Historic Cane Hill on Saturday, May 21, 2022 at 10:00 AM!
