 This program is a part of our new Family Fun Days series. 

Fun encounters in the Gardens for the whole family! Different topics each week will provide opportunities for visitors of all ages to discover the wonders of the Gardens.

Things that creep and crawl don’t just go bump in the night. Invertebrates make up more than 75 percent of all animal life on our planet and we know so little about them. Come learn how cool and beneficial bugs are. Live insects from around the world and your backyard will be presented by the Alabama Museum of Natural History.
