Riverbend Nature Center BugFest

Posted: Updated:
 It was a fun night at the Riverbend Nature Center on Friday.  They hosted their 11th annual BugFest!

Kids got the opportunity to check out all of the creepy crawlers.  Some kids even ate cooked bugs!  One kid said it didn't taste that bad.

Insects are the largest group of animals on the planet.  The coordinator for the Insect Adventure said they make the planet functional.  She said it is important for people to learn about them so they aren't afraid.

Maybe knowing their importance in the ecosystem will make us think twice before squashing them.
