Volunteer at Chicago Bug Bash

Posted by Ron Wolford -

On July 14 we will be partnering with the Museum of Science and Industry to present the Chicago Bug Bash. This will be a one day event for kids and adults focusing on insects. This event is patterned after the Purdue Bug Bowl which draws 15,000 people each spring. Each volunteer will receive a T-shirt, free parking at the museum and a continental breakfast.
