Join Underwater Insect Safari at Tennant Lake April 29


Budding entymologists are invited to enjoy an Underwater Insect Safari with Wild Whatcom Walks from 10:30 a.m. to noon Sunday, April 29, at the Tennant Lake Interpretive Center in Ferndale, 5236 Nielsen Ave.

Play "What's that bug?" with a group and be surprised to discover what's riding on the surface tension and who is wearing snorkel gear at this time of year.

Find out what it takes to be a bug, rather than a regular insect, and wave at whirlgig beetles, dip-net dragonfly nymphs, sneak up on water striders, spy on scuds and search for the elusive water scorpion.

Registration for this event is required as space is limited. Register at

Cost is $10 per person or $30 for a family of four.
