About this campaign

(Looking for adult shirt sizes? Head to our other campaign page: https://booster.com/nevadabugs_grown-up)

2014 was a big success for Nevada Bugs & Butterflies: in one season alone we quadrupled the number of visitors to the Butterfly House & Science Center! Besides the 884 visitors to the butterfly house, we also connected with 2,814 budding scientists who joined us at free outreach events held in local schools, libraries, and museums. We’re asking for your support as we plan to extend our reach even further in 2015!

Sure, the butterflies won’t fly again until springtime, but our plans take wing over the winter, when we focus on developing new programming, researching curriculum, training volunteers, and securing supplies for the summer to come. Additionally, outreach in classrooms and community centers continues through the winter months.

Please, consider buying a t-shirt to support us as we use hands-on experiences with Northern Nevada’s native insects to get kids excited about science and the environment! These shirts make great gifts and will arrive in time for the holidays!

At Nevada Bugs & Butterflies, a Reno nonprofit, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience and learn about local biodiversity. So, with your support, in 2013 we built and opened a Butterfly House and Science Center, an always-free educational resource for the Northern Nevada community. At the Butterfly House in Lemmon Valley, fundamental science concepts come alive for our visitors, demonstrating big ideas like pollination, life cycles, and biodiversity. We surround visitors with many kinds of native species, including dozens of Nevada’s 200 native butterflies, as well as other insect ambassadors like beetles, millipedes, and vinegaroons, some of which visitors can hold.

Enthusiasm from our participants is clear, and studies show that reaching children before high school produces a lasting affinity for science. Experiences at Nevada Bugs & Butterflies foster a love of insects, a renewed sense of place, and a strong connection with the abundant life in our backyard. Abstract concepts about science and the environment become real, living things that kids can observe and interact with under the friendly guidance of our volunteer biologists. On-site activities also include a scavenger hunt, rotating science and art projects, insect toys and costumes, and a library of children’s nature and science books.

In 2013, we reached 1,286 community members (mostly children), and in 2014, we increased that number to 3,698. We are confident that we can maintain this trajectory for a third year, with your help. We also hope to use community support to extend our programming, building on the success of 2014 workshops on Local Reptiles and Amphibians, Citizen Science Monarch Tagging, and Gardening to Attract Pollinators. We want to add more sophisticated citizen science projects at the butterfly house, where students are engaged in the production of scientific knowledge. And, we want to develop curriculum that helps teachers with implementation of Nevada’s Next Generation Science Standards for K-12 classrooms.
