Family Nature Club: Overwintering Insects
All insects have strategies to survive winter. Some migrate, like monarch butterflies and dragonflies; others’ overwinter as eggs, pupae, and larvae to continue their species, like grasshoppers; yet, others hibernate, or “diapause”, like ladybugs and wasps. We will read Bugs and Bugsicles and conduct experiments and associate insect life cycles to the seasons to understand how these small creatures survive the Wisconsin winters.
Meet at the Northern Ozaukee School Forest. Trails are gravel and easy for a stroller. Please dress warm for the weather and bring a source of light (lantern, flashlight, or headlamp).
Family Nature Club is a free offering to our community designed for kids ages 5-12 and their families. We facilitate outdoor, environmental-education based experiences for families to enjoy together.
