Posted: Updated:

There's going to be an Insect Safari at Bernheim Forest this Saturday. At BugFest, kids can dance the buggy boogie, taste the tempting Cricket Crunch, count the pickled ticks plus a whole host of other horrible delights. The whole family can enjoy the creepie crawlies. For the faint of heart, there will be plenty of butterflies to view. There will also be music, games and fun.

Whitney Wurzel, the Youth and Family Programs Manager at Bernheim brought a whole candy box of insect to try out. The WDRB in the Morning Cast were game. Mike Marshall says the chocolate covered mealworms were very mild. Lindsay Allen and Jude Redfield went for the chocolate covered cricket kabobs.

BugFest runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Bernheim's Visitor Center. It just cost $5 a car at the front gate for non-members, members enter free.

It runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and features Bernheim Select™, a distinctive variety of plants propagated from Bernheim's own collections. There will also be a varied selection of other unique trees, shrubs, grasses and perennial herbaceous plants.
