Second Saturdays at the Museum | Exploring the Au Sable

Many types of Michigan insects help us take care of the environment and are extremely important to our ecosystems – even the one in your own backyard! Ladybugs, spiders, and bees provide services we might not even think about – like pollinating our plants and eating pest insects like mosquitos. Over

the winter, these friendly critters need somewhere to live and hibernate – which can be hard for them to find in our big, empty, grassy lawns. At this month’s Second Saturday event, attendees will make “bug hotels” for their own porch, backyard or shed, to make sure that helpful insects have a place to live during the cold Michigan winter.

Second Saturday activities are available from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on the 2nd Saturday of each month and are included with the cost of admission. Learn more about hours and admission at michigan.gov/michiganhistory
