“Bug Bash” – All about bugs Weekend: Chief Logan

July 7, 2023 @ 8:00 pm July 8, 2023 @ 10:00 pm

The annual “Bug Bash” Weekend at Chief Logan State Park Lodge is July 7-9, 2023. Assistant Superintendent Lauren Cole invites all ages to join her for some excitement about fascinating wildlife commonly known as “bugs.” “We are not bashing or mashing anything. We are learning about arthropods, butterflies, moths, fireflies and other insects in a fun way” says Cole. “Bug Bash” is Friday, July 7 and Saturday, July 8, 2023 from 8:00 – 10:00 pm.

“Bug Bash” weekend activities may include a big bug jar, insect luring, arthropod jeopardy, butterfly bag toss and Monarch masquerade craft, firefly glow activity and gardening for pollinators. 

Activities are in or begin in the Conference Room at Chief Logan Lodge. There will be an insect luring light set up in the gazebo or the back patio where we hope to discover moths and other more nocturnal insects. We encourage use of a camera to capture insect images that we use to identify unusual finds. Children must bring a parent or guardian with them. All Bug Bash activities are free to attend. Open to the public.
