ISU Insect Zoo

ISU Insect Zoo:

Join us as the Iowa State University showcases their Insect Zoo with over 100 living arthropods on July 29th from 3-5PM. From beetles to roaches, tarantulas, and scorpions, come get up close and personal with some very important animals! Insects and other arthropods are vital for our environment. Insects are decomposers, recycling nutrients back into the earth. They filter water and are a sign of stream health. Many arthropods help to distribute seeds of trees and plants and aerate the soil. Insects are also important pollinators, pollinating 1 out of every 3 bites of food you take! Come and learn even more cool insect facts at the zoo! This is a come and go event sponsored by Chad's Plumbing!
