April 30, 2009

The 23rd Annual Bug Fair will be held at the Natural History Museum of LA County on Saturday, May 16 and Sunday, May 17 from 9:30 am to 5 pm with insect displays, interactive educatioal booths, music, demonstrations and more! The Bug Fair is included with Museum admission.

Bring a spider!!! The Los Angeles Urban Spider Survey enters its seventh year and we once again urge patrons to bring in any spider that they collect. HOWEVER – The Museum appreciates your assistance with the Spider Survey. If you have any concerns about participating, we suggest you DO NOT participate. The Museum cannot be responsible for the treatment of any bites or any illness resulting from the project.

Grandpa Ron and I visited the museum and really enjoyed the rocks and gems and the butterflies!
