Have you ever eaten a bug,.....on purpose?

Are you ready to ramp up the "ick" factor and expand you epicurean boundaries?

We've got a family-friendly, informative, edible insect program which explores a short prairie trail and allows participants to enjoy some high-quality food along the path. Over 2 billion people world-wide delight in a diet of insects, so why haven't you considered it?

Join Ranger Lisa at the Nature Center before we survey the prairie for insect friends, and taste some spicy antennae, a crunchy leg, or twitching member of the phylum arthropoda.
