Come join DCR on an insect safari this Saturday in Canton from 1 to 2:30 p.m. The safari will have you digging in dirt, crawling on your knees, and squealing with delight at all the six-legged creatures you find! DCR will take you on a meadow exploration where you will capture and release all types of insects. Nets, bug boxes, and magnifiers will be provided to help you identify and study each creature you find.
To join in on this free activity, meet DCR rangers at the Brookwood Community Farm at 11 Blue Hill River Rd. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes and clothes that you don’t mind getting messy!
