Cool Bugs We Love!

The Role of Insects in Northern Michigan

Who: Human Nature School and friends

What: Fundraising Event- Art Show and Sale

Theme: Cool Bugs We Love- The Role of Insects in Northern Michigan

When: Saturday June 15th, 2019 from 1 pm- 5 pm

Where: Unity Church, 3600 Five Mile Road, Traverse City 49686

Why: Art is everywhere and we all seek it out! But we might call it a nature
hike or a trip to the beach or a visit to a farm. One of the most beautiful art
forms often overlooked are bugs and they are everywhere – pollinating the
majority of our food crops, decomposing organic material, aerating the soil,
providing food for thousands of other species, and creating products for humans
like silk, honey, and some inks and dyes. Some bugs are endangered and when
we lose them, we also lose all of these important ecosystem services that they
perform.

On June 15th, please join us for an Art Show and Sale featuring local artists and
some special activity events for the whole family!

More detailed information and registration forms will be available by February
15th .
