Eight thumbs up for Bug Safari for grown-ups!

Now that I look at the title of this post, it sounds like a review given by a spider. But actually, seven people (3 couples and a single older lady) and myself all had a very enjoyable time this morning. Each of the younger women said it was their husband/boyfriend's interest in bugs that brought them in, but they appreciated the chance to see and learn about this little world of nature that often goes unnoticed. Their menfolk took the opportunity to to revert to their childhood and swung their nets at any insects that came within range. One guy proudly caught a butterfly (which we released, of course). The older lady seemed somewhat uncertain how she felt about bugs, but seemed interested in learning about them nonetheless, because "God made them," or words to that effect.

Everyone filled out a little post-tour survey form with positive remarks, including "We need more classes like this for adults!" Our next Bug Safari for grown-ups is in July. I'm looking forward to it!
