Bama Bug Fest: On the Web – The Wonderful World of Water Bugs
July 14 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Aquatic insects are an incredibly important part of our world. They are a source of food for fish and other animals and help indicate water quality in our streams. Join Dr. Milt Ward, aquatic insect expert, for a fascinating livestream on the wonderful world of water bugs.
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.
