Mill Creek MetroParks presents “Bug Day” at the MetroParks Farm on Saturday, August 5, 2023 from 11:00am-3:00pm. This free, family friendly event will include live bug exhibits, including “The BugMan”, Mark Berman, from Columbus, Ohio; Orin McMonigle, author of dozens of books on insects; and Don Kovach, the local “Bee-Manager.” Other fun activities will include gentle and respectful bug-catching and release, bug crafts, a bug tattoo station, and a special Pop-Up Library visit from the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County. Mill Creek MetroParks merchandise, snacks, drinks, tractor wagon rides, and a framed photo at the bug-themed photo booth will be available for purchase (cash only).
For those who want an even more close-up bug-experience, there will be a private BugMan Stage Show that takes place immediately before the free, public Bug Day! event. This private show will feature The BugMan’s original up-close videos and live bug demonstrations. It is an entertaining and informative up-close and personal presentation that is sure to wow both children and adults. Limited to 30 participants.
