Second Saturdays: Blood Suckers!

This past Second Saturdays event the nature center was all about Riverside’s blood suckers!  With summer upon us, there’s lots of fun in the sun and water to be had!  But uninvited guests can buzz in and cause an itchy mess!  Lucky for us there are people dedicated to helping fight the itch!

To help us tackle nature’s vampires (mosquitoes and flees and ticks- OH MY!) Bill with the Northwest Mosquito and Vector Control District joined us and brought along some of his pesky friends!  Visitors were able to ask Bill questions, get up close to mosquitoes in all stages of their life cycle, see mosquito fish, and participate in some fun craft activities!

Thank you Bill for the great event!  The nature center is always happy to welcome visiting guests and hopes to partner again with the Northwest Mosquito and Vector Control District in the future!
