Blackstone Parks Conservancy

Bug Hunt

Pollinators, decomposers, predators, and prey… See what you find!  We’ll have bug catchers and hand lenses, guide books, and an “expert” to help you identify them.  Meet at Blackstone Field, across from the Narragansett Boat Club (2 River Drive, Providence, RI 02906). Masks and registration required.
This event is part of our monthly “Art & Science in the Park” series with 15 Minute Field Trips, focusing on community action to protect wildlife, promote biodiversity, and combat climate change.  Learn about local flora and fauna through art and science activities.  Great for families or to use in the classroom.  Stay longer to enjoy the park, pick up litter, or use your new knowledge to educate others.
This event is led by Melissa Guillet, from 15 Minute Field Trips. Melissa has taught art for over 20 years and is an avid nature-lover involved in gardening, hiking, and collecting data as a citizen scientist.
