Pines and Prairies Land Trust


The next nature lesson is this Thursday, October 23rd at the Lost Pines Nature Trails. The class is on Bugs -The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. In this class we will be discussing:
• How to recognize an insect – the outside working parts of an insect
• How insects grow
• How insects smell, taste see and hear
• How they fly, move and feed

We will also be discussing beneficial and harmful insects in our eco-system.

After the lesson we will play “The Bug Game”; if time permits we will go on an exploration hike to find bugs and their habitats.
Finally we will be making a BUGS and DIRT snack.

Please wear comfortable walking shoes, bring water, sun and bug protection.
