A program highlighting insects will be presented at the next Children’s Hour at the Maturango Museum, held Friday, May 18, from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

“The Docent Story Group is looking forward to being with all the enthusiastic young children this last time before summer vacation,” said a spokesperson.

“There seems to be a natural fascination, or curiosity at least, between bugs and children. What changes insects go through in their life cycle from tiny egg to adult are amazing!

“With stories and activities and viewing magnified models up close, the children are certain to have a learning and fun experience.”

The museum will continue to be open during the summer from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

In addition to the indoor exhibits, families are encouraged to explore the grounds, where lizards, cottontails, jackrabbits, birds and tortoises make regular appearances.

The Children’s Hour regular schedule resumes in September.
