Preregistration required for all teen participants. This program is designed for teens (ages 13-17). Registered youth will participate in this program without an adult.
Registered program participants should meet in the Center for Conservation at our Rowe Woods location. (Get Directions)

Show the forest, fields, ponds, and streams from a bug’s eye view with the power of technology and the intensity of hands-on exploration! Make nature fun and accessible for all by learning the art of digital nature storytelling with Kristie Reddick and Jessica Honaker, professional entomologists and educators known as The Bug Chicks. They use their equipment and technical skills to help you see nature in a whole new way! You’ll leave with skills, tricks and ideas to create conservation-focused nature shorts that show your audience why nature is worth protecting. You can share your videos with family, friends and maybe even college recruiters!

An experience with The Bug Chicks is not to be missed! These world-traveling scientists and sci-comm specialists are bringing their enthusiasm for bugs - big and small - to Cincinnati. They specialize in working with teens on conservation studies and have even led explorers ages 13 – 17 in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. Don’t miss this unique chance to work side-by-side with these nationally recognized entomologists.
