UGA Entomology Insect Zoo coming to Athens library

The Athens-Clarke County Library invites teen to come learn about creepy crawly critters on Tuesday, when the library hosts an interactive educational program with the University of Georgia’s H.O. Lund Club on native insects.


At this event, taking place 4:30-5:30 p.m., teens will get an opportunity to fuel their curiosity by learning about native wildlife through interactive activities and the UGA Entomology Insect Zoo.

The UGA Entomology Insect Zoo is a program designed to educate the young and old about insects and other arthropods. Living insects, centipedes, millipedes, scorpions, and spiders, as well as museum specimens from Georgia and other parts of the world, are brought to schools, libraries, organizations, or community centers for interactive display.

Led by UGA students from The H.O. Lund Club, the main mission of the Insect Zoo is to dispel misconceptions about insects and to give teens an opportunity to hang out with arthropods in a learning environment.

This program is open to grades 6-12 only.

For more information, please call (706) 613-3650.

The Athens-Clarke County Library is located at 2025 Baxter St., Athens.
