Children and their families planted beetle-friendly seeds, created bug hotels and pet rocks, and got to see live beetles up close at Budding Gardeners: Meet the Beetles on October 8!

This program was presented by Grace Carter, an extension agent in 4-H youth development at UF|IFAS Duval County Extension Office, who discussed different beetles you can find in your yard in Florida. She also brought several different species of beetles for kids to see in person!
