Roseville families get buggy

January 14, 2017 by  

Roseville is hosting a series of Exploration Events that show both adults and children how to protect local resources. These events focus on fun and how to save money. The one coming in early February will be “Bird and Bug Bonanza”.

Bird and Bug Bonanza will focus on three areas – caring for local waterways and creeks, building bluebird houses and working with the Bug Squad.

Guests will be invited to flow down a storm drain to Cruddy Creek, the indoor interactive creek crawl. Participants will want to avoid soap, oil and dog excrement along with other water pollutants.

Although the event will be free, there will be a $10 materials fee for the supplies to build bluebird houses in the Home Tweet Home area.

The Bug Squad will assist the attendees in separating bugs into three categories – the bad ones, the good ones and the just plain buggy ones.

Other activities will be available for kids and their families to get a good look and feel for our local habitat.

Everyone will receive a seed packet of local seeds to help get those gardens blooming and to provide food for local birds and animals.

Pictures taken at this event will make interesting additions to the Center’s visitor’s guide brochures.

This event will be Saturday, February 4th from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm at the Utility Exploration Center, 1501 Pleasant Grove Blvd here in Roseville.
