Kansas 4-H Insect Spectacular

Come fly with us! It’s time to get registered for the 26th Kansas 4-H Insect Spectacular, which will be held Friday and Saturday June 22nd and 23rd. We will be hosted by the Sedgwick County Zoo, 5555 Zoo Boulevard in Wichita, Kansas.  The workshop is open to all youth and adult volunteers interested in 4-H entomology! Please note that one parent from each family must register and attend with children.

Learn about collecting, storing, identifying, and pinning your insects for exhibit.  All levels of experience are encouraged to attend, from beginning to advanced.  This is a fun event, designed to encourage curiosity and the sharing of knowledge.  This year’s event will feature several sessions specifically on Lepidoptera, otherwise known as butterflies!
