Learn about the benefits that beetles have in your garden. Grace Carter, an extension agent in 4-H youth development at UF|IFAS Duval County Extension Office, will discuss the different beetles you are likely to find in your yard at home and how they go through metamorphosis just like butterflies. She will also bring several species of beetles to see in person! Children will take a home plant where a beetle might like to live and make a bug hotel.
Budding Gardeners is aimed at children in grades 1-6 to discover gardening, conservation, and wildlife through interactive programs, crafts, and outdoor projects. Children and their parents or caregivers collaborate during a morning of healthy and fun activities. A snack in sealed packaging will be served.
The program is free for members and only $5 for nonmembers, but space is limited. Registration is required, so we know how many supplies to provide. Please call 904-355-4224 if your child cannot attend, so we can allow those on the waiting list to take part.

Each registration includes one parent and child.
