One of the garden’s largest and most well-known festivals–Insectival–is going virtual this year! Participants will receive a virtual package full of informational videos, tours, activities, crafts, and the popular butterfly release from our favorite entomology experts. Join garden staff and partners as we celebrate our beloved six-legged neighbors!
Registrants will receive the Insectival virtual package beginning September 19th and will have access to all materials through October 31st. On September 26th, we held our live family friendly Q&A webinar with entomology experts followed by the first-ever virtual butterfly release, which are both now available for viewing on the Insectival webpage as well. Registrants also have the option to add-on our $30 Hello Bug Box, which contains produce grown in the Alice H. Richards Children’s Garden, recipe cards with delicious ways to prepare each item, and optional insect protein that can be added for that extra crunch and nutrition!
Insectival is sponsored by the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, UGA Lund Club, UGA Department of Entomology and Georgia Museum of Natural History.
