If creepy crawlies don’t give you the creeps, then maybe Arthropolooza: The Ultimate Bugfest will. This weekend only, February 18-19, 2023 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. celebrate all things creepy, crawly, sticky, prickly, wiggly, yucky, and kind of cute. The day(s) will be filled with festivities that highlight arthropods as well as a great opportunity for families to have a good time together to develop a love of nature!
Experience the fascinating world of insects through outdoor exploration games and hands-on art activities. The museum has captured the following partners to make sure to keep you “busy as a bee”: California Native Plant Society, Chino Hills State Park Discovery Center, San Bernardino County Department of Public Health Vector Control, The Wildlands Conservancy, Jurupa Mountain Discovery Center, Oak Canyon Nature Center, Bee Rooted, and more!
