Arthropalooza

This Highlands Center favorite has crawled its way onto the world wide web.

Whether you find insects gross or fascinating, this festival is for you! From August 15th to the 22nd check this web page for arthropod related videos and activities. From anatomy to life cycles, you are sure to leave with a better understanding of these often misunderstood creatures.
