Today at the museum we observed different bugs and other creatures. Our guests learned so much about the critters living around us! Thanks so much to Darren from MSU for catching all of the creatures and teaching us all about them.
This little crayfish is saying “hello!”
They sure are fast little critters, good job catching them!
Alyssum flowers are blossoming outside our greenhouse. These pretty little flowers are food for caterpillars.
The day lilies throughout the museum gardens are blooming, too. Did you know that these plants are edible? The flower petals are crunchy like lettuce when eaten raw, but you can also find recipes for cooking the flowers. You can even make “pickles” from them!
