Free Long Island Children's Event
Join us at one of our free children’s library events this summer. It’s our 7th year presenting our show “Future Scientists: Learn What It Takes to Become an Entomologist.” Our very first show in 2011 was on a very hot summer day in Port Jefferson. Two of our entomologists, Lynn Frank and Bob Wiemer, introduced the children to Madagascar hissing roaches, a tarantula, scorpion and other insects. They talked briefly about each, gave each child a close-up experience and answered a ton of questions. Our shows always begin with a coloring book and end with a prize give-away. This year, we again look forward to meeting more Long Island children, their parents and the librarians!
The free library program runs for 45 minutes to an hour for Grades 3 - 5. Come and join the buggy fun!
