Family Catch & Release Insect Safari

September 19 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm

Take our insect nets out to the meadows and prairies to see what you can catch (and release). Butterflies, dragonflies, moths, and more can be caught and observed in magnifying boxes. Then sweep the ground to see what interesting insects you can find hiding in the leaves and grasses.

This program is $5 per family for members and $15 per family for non-members. All ages welcome! Meets at the Pavilion.

Maximum of 15 families.
Pre-registration is required by September 18.

Education Program Safety Policies:

The Brenton Arboretum staff continue to closely monitor national and local guidance regarding the status of COVID-19 in our community. In order to protect public health, education program participants must adhere to the following safety guidelines:

  • If you are unwell, or have been in contact with someone who is unwell in the past 14 days, then you must not attend the program. Refunds in full will be issued upon request, otherwise fees collected will be considered donations to support the Arboretum during this time of reduced operations.
  • You must comply with current public health guidelines, which include social distancing and the use of masks under certain circumstances when on-site.
