Crystal Springs Preserve offers THE best nature classes. This weeks theme was bugs. First they do an interactive informational session and afterwards exploration activities. I was hoping to catch site of a rattler, coral snake or alligator while we were there but no such luck. We did learn the proper way to catch multiple bugs with a net and how to hold grasshoppers. The kids set in a circle at the end of class and passed around their containers filled with all the different types of bugs they had found. Then they let them all go at the same time.  Did you know there are more people who eat bugs as their main source of protein in the world than those who eat meat from animals?
