We’ll share local stories from our own L.A. backyard, show off the most unique specimens in our collection, highlight entomologists from all over the globe and more. All aboard for a bugtastic weekend you won’t want to miss!

Enter the alternative world of critter cuisine with your hosts Aly Moore (of Bugible) and Dustin Growick (of Dino 101) in a bugtastic livestream experience. This educational and interactive show explores entomophagy (the practice of eating bugs), how culture and critters intersect, and concludes with a live taste test.
