Grade 3/4 students from Mayfair school visited the Prairie Habitat Garden to hunt for insects in and around the garden. They found a large variety of insects in different stages of life. Flying insects were caught with butterfly nets and worms and ant eggs were discovered under rocks. We even had an entomologist stop by and talk about some of the insects we caught and saw. All of the bugs were let go and returned to their habitat and the students had lots of fun learning about some of the smallest creatures in our prairie habitat.
