Hokie BugFest Returns!

Saturday, Oct. 20, Squires Student Center

Hokie BugFest highlights an ongoing youth education program hosted by the Department of Entomology, Virginia Cooperative Extension's 4-H program, and the department's student-run professional organization, the W. B. Alwood Entomological Society. Last year's BugFest was attended by more than 8,400 people.

By way of a long-running partnership among the National Institutes of Health, the Northern Virginia 4-H Center, and Special Love — a nonprofit created by Tom and Sheila Baker, who lost their daughter, Julie, to lymphoma — Camp Fantastic provides a traditional 4-H camping program for children fighting cancer.
