Merrick State Park: Bugs are really, really buggin’ me


On Saturday, June 12, at 8 p.m., Park Naturalist John Carrier will try to convince us that “The reason Merrick State Park is such a cool place is all these bugs!” Come find out just what he means. We all understand that mosquitoes feed some birds, but what will he say to support this broad statement? Live creatures.

Get a closer look at all these bugs, and see some truly weird creatures. According to Carrier, “Some are a nuisance, some are beneficial, some are beautiful, and some are almost scary!”

The program at the Park Nature Center is free and open to the public, although a park pass is required for entry and parking in the park.

Group sizes vary and may be limited to promote social distancing. Participants are encouraged to practice social distancing, frequent hand washing and to wear a face covering if social distancing cannot be maintained. All programs will be outdoors. If you are feeling ill or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you refrain a from participating in the program.
