Roseville Utility Exploration Center Hosts Bird and Bug Bonanza
February 2, 2019
Roseville, CA- The early bird catches the worm, and you can meet both the bird and the worm at Bird and Bug Bonanza!
You are invited to explore life in local creeks and waterways at this free family event. Peer through our microscopes at pond scum, hold composting worms in your hand, watch bees buzz around their hive and introduce yourself to some rescued ambassador birds.
Journey through the storm drain 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).
