Roseville Bird Bug Bonanza

Buzz on in for exciting games and activities

Roseville, CA- A little bird told us that Bird and Bug Bonanza is the bee’s knees!

Buzz on in to our free, family event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, February 1 at the Roseville Utility Exploration Center, 1501 Pleasant Grove Blvd., Roseville.

Get up close and personal with live birds and bugs. Peer through microscopes at pond scum, hold composting worms in your hand, watch bees buzz around their hive and get to know some rescued ambassador birds. Flow down the storm drain on a journey to explore Cruddy Creek, an indoor, interactive creek crawl. Head to the game room to win prizes playing Busy Bees, Lady Bug Power and Flip-In Creek. Get your face painted with creative designs. Build a birdhouse to create a safe home for local backyard birds ($10 materials fee, while supplies last).
