One of the garden’s largest and most well-known festivals–Insectival–is going virtual this year. Participants will receive a virtual package full of information, activities, tours, crafts, puppet shows and the popular butterfly release from our favorite entomology experts. Join garden staff and partners as we celebrate our beloved six-legged neighbors. Insect-ival is sponsored by the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, UGA Lund Club, UGA Department of Entomology and Georgia Museum of Natural History.

Registrants will receive the Insect-ival virtual package beginning September 19th. This will include six videos and resources with information, craft and education activities to do at home. On September 26th registrants are invited to join a family friendly Q&A webinar via Zoom with entomology experts. At 11 am, following the live Q&A, registrants will get to view the first-ever virtual butterfly release. Registrants have the option to add-on items: Hello Bug Box.

A curated plant collection designed for pollinators will be available for purchase as well (must be purchased separately).
