Bug Fest 2023 is coming! Join us at the Academy of Natural Sciences for a wild weekend celebrating more than a few of our favorite (invertebrate) things.
Enjoy scientist-guided Bug Walks on the Parkway and our famous Roach Races, or discover your love for something surprising like the unexpected insect biodiversity of your local park.
Explore specimens from the Academy’s world-class Entomology Collection, including recently discovered beetles, bees and butterflies. “Ask the Experts” at scientist meet-and-greets for all ages.
Talk with Academy researchers and fellow bug enthusiasts to find out how their passion for all things invertebrate impacts and shapes our communities.
