The highly anticipated Bugs! exhibit opened at the museum and we spent some time exploring it this morning before our nature walk. We were all very impressed.
In one area they have a TV set up with a short documentary on the Mountain Pine Beetle and the devastation it is causing in our forests. Next to the television is a wood plank with visible beetle tunnels. I started to verbalize what the signs said and what the plank was there to show and Sweetie asked me to stop, “I know mom! I’m trying to learn. I can’t hear the guy on the TV when you are talking, Mom!” I could only apologize for distracting her and smile as I walked away.The most interesting message the exhibit delivered was how insects impact our lives – both beneficially and detrimentally.
