Ask the Scientists: Summer Buggin’
August 13 - 15 at 10:30 a.m.

Sun, fun and ... bugs? Insects in summer do more than give itchy bites and invade your picnics. They fill a myriad of roles for the benefit of ecosystems in Philadelphia and around the globe!

During our annual Bug Fest, join us for a special Ask the Scientists to ask Academy entomologists about beneficial insects, plus bring along any other insect questions you might have.

This event is part of the Academy's Bug Fest. Join us for a month of in person and virtual programs. Click here for details.
