Out-Reach Programs

Let the Bug Lady and her animal friends come to your school or daycare to educate your students about habitats, animal’s diets, and animal biology, with tons of interesting and fun facts. Depending upon the selected program, up to 20+ animals ranging from tarantulas to lizards will come for the visit. This is a wonderful opportunity to expose children to animals and to allow for up close viewings and an opportunity to handle several of them. These programs are sure to entertain! It is a fun time for all- especially the animals they LOVE the attention!
