In this Bama Bug Fest: On the Web livestream, join “The Comic Strip” in Tuscaloosa, arachnologist Dr. Sebastian Alejandro Echeverri, and Black Widow for a conversation about the intersection between Black Widow and real-life black widow spiders.
Bama Bug Fest: On the Web is a virtual, all-things-bug event that has a little something for all ages and will take place every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from July 7 to July 25. Though we are social distancing this year, we’re not missing out on any of the bug fun! Take part in interactive video elements; watch interviews with experts; learn how to draw insect characters; join in bug-themed storytelling, and much, much more.
This year’s Bama Bug Fest will be livestreaming on Facebook and YouTube, four times a day (10 AM, 2 PM, 4 PM, and 7 PM), with segments for different age groups and interests, ending each day with a wrap-up and Q&A for the public. Additional pre-recorded videos will be posted and shared by the University of Alabama Museums and Tuscaloosa Public Library on their social media platforms.
