Wisconsin Insect Fest

Learn about and celebrate the diversity of Wisconsin’s insects and other arthropods with members of the UW-Madison Department of Entomology. This first-time event will feature lectures, guided activities, and The Great Wisconsin Bug Hunt. Activities kick off Friday evening and continue through Saturday. A main focus of the event will be The Great Wisconsin Bug Hunt—an arthropod BioBlitz activity on Saturday. It doesn’t matter if it’s been decades since you last collected an insect or if you’re a regular insect observer—The Great Wisconsin Bug Hunt offers a chance to join entomologists and fellow insect enthusiasts to see just how many different arthropods can be observed at Kemp Station in a single day. Saturday’s schedule will feature a number of educational breakout activities to supplement the BioBlitz activity. Persons of all interest levels are welcome – come for some or stay for all.
