It's a Bug's Life!
Last week's newsletter let us explore what was growing in our backyards. So this week, we'll take a closer look at the thousands of insects that depend on those plants to live.

You and your 4-Her will be amazed at how many types of insects make Polk County their home, and you'll get to find out how to encourage the ones that are helpful and discourage those that aren't. Plus, you'll even learn about some statewide and nationwide projects that let you become an insect researcher!

This issue is packed hands-on activities, crafts, videos and more that will let your whole family get outside together and make the most of this time while we're sheltering in place. Let's find out what's buzzing around your Polk County backyard!
Note: if for some reason you can't access the newsletter on your computer or device, please follow up by email with your mailing address and we will send you a physical copy each week.
