Armed with nets and jars, kids of all ages explored Heritage Park in Blacksburg, Va to find and capture flying and crawling insects during Hokie BugCamp 2021. The Virginia Tech Department of Entomology in partnership with the Virginia 4-H Virginia Cooperative Extension and the New River Land Trust hosted three mini sessions of Hokie BugCamp which focused on insect collecting–the most popular component of the youth camp–in which kids collected, identified, and learned how to pin their found specimens. In addition to insect collecting, campers also participated in an insect scavenger hunt and an insect collection contest.
