16th Annual Insect Festival: Sep 8th, 2018

Bugs rule at this unusual annual event hosted by Rutgers Master Gardeners of Mercer County.

Activities include:

  • The Big Bug Band featuring a sing-along accompanied by “kid made” instruments
  • Bugs in water
  • Butterfly births
  • Monarch butterfly tagging
  • Bugs galore (insect inspection and handling)
  • Hayrides
  • Garden Q & A with Barbara J. Bromley, Mercer County Horticulturist

When: September 8 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Where: Mercer Educational Gardens
             431 A Federal City Road
