Arkansas Entomological Society to Hold Annual Meeting at Hobbs State Park – Public Invited to See Live Bug Zoo, Kids Crafts and other Activities

12 Feb 2018 10:17 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Entomology is the study of insects and related organisms.  According to the current president of the organization, Hillary Fischer, “We as a society were founded in 1991 for the purpose of getting everyone in Arkansas together to share our research.  If you are interested in becoming a member of the AES and want to participate in our meeting at Hobbs State Park, please contact me at:  hillfisch@gmail.com.”

If you just want to bring the kids to have some free fun with insects, leave the afternoon of February 17 open.   The afternoon portion of the AES gathering boasts an “Open House” where there will be booths set up to learn about insects.  There will be a live bug zoo, and collection boxes.  There will also be microscopes with things to look at and people there to talk about them.  In addition, there will be crafts for the kids and other activities.

What kid doesn’t like insects?  What parent doesn’t like free kid activities?  It’s a kid, insect, parent match made in heaven.  Don’t miss it!

Where:  Hobbs State Park visitor center located on Hwy 12 just east of the Hwy. 12/War Eagle Road intersection
When:  February 17, 2018 - Open House 1 pm – 3 pm
Cost:        Free – Public invited      

For more information, call:  479-789-5000
