Critter Crawl: A Butterfly Flutter & Bug Bash is a children’s event scattered throughout the Cockrell Butterfly Center (CBC) and courtyard. On Saturday, February 26, 2022, children will explore the CBC through a multitude of unusual activities: cockroach racing, insect dissections, face painting, an insect petting zoo, a bug-centric scavenger hunt, and more. Parents and grandparents will have the opportunity to share with their little “caterpillars” a passion and curiosity for the world of science—and its many creatures—through this memorable experience. Funds from Critter Crawl support the operating budget of the Cockrell Butterfly Center and enrich educational programs at HMNS.
