Insect Night Walk for Families

Insect Night Walk is sponsored by the OSU entomology department's Entomology Graduate Student Association (EGSA). We took a two-year hiatus due to Covid-19, but we're ready to welcome families and all bug fans to the OSU Wooster campus for an evening focused on insects and other creepy crawlies!

At this free public event, visitors will learn about the diversity, lifestyles and communication of Ohio's nighttime insect community. We'll offer a wide range of experiences designed for all ages, including a guided tour, educational and artistic tables, and the award-winning OSU Bug Zoo. Visitors can also participate in raffles and scavenger hunts.
