Dive into hands-on activities for all ages and savor complimentary lunch. Experience carnival games, bug tasting, live vector displays, a jumpy house, and meet The Queen Bee Ettamarie alongside her captivating honeybee observation hive.

Attendees will also have a chance for up-close and personal encounters with some special critters courtesy of the students from the Petaluma Wildlife Museum.

Discover field equipment like drones, airboats, and Argo amphibious ATVs, and learn how they help us combat mosquito populations. Engage with our knowledgeable staff to understand mosquito and vector control in your community.

Plus, join the excitement as we announce the winners of the Backyard Bugs Contest! Open to students from TK through 6th grade, this contest incorporates observation, careful drawing, research, and insect appreciation. Every participant who attends the Open House receives a pocket nature journal, and the top three entries in each of four age groups will win more valuable prizes related to science and nature.
