Wildlings Camp is a great way to introduce your child to the wonders of the outdoors. Did you know butterflies taste with their feet? Or that most flowers cannot make seeds without help from insects. Insects are fascinating and have so many neat adaptations to learn about. Go on an insect safari and see what insects live in the forests and prairies. Discover their secrets and learn more about these tiny creatures that share our world.
