Thank you for an amazing 2017 season!

Fall is in the air, and as the season winds down for the insects, the board and staff of Nevada Bugs would just like to say THANK YOU for another amazing season, both at our science center and butterfly house and at our numerous outreach events in the northern Nevada area. As always, we continue to meet new families and reach new groups, and we are so grateful for the chance to teach our community about the value of our region’s native plants and animals. In addition to that, we raised $3,500 at our recent 5th Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser. So again, to our visitors, supporters, and insect lovers, we say thank you!

Of course, 2017 isn’t done yet- our director Kevin Burls will be speaking at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute on November 8th, at the Galena Creek Visitor Center on November 12th, and we hope to see you at one of those events. And as always, feel free to contact us with any questions for program requests!
