SCB kids get up close with bugs
DESTREHAN - Early childhood students at St. Charles Borromeo School in Destrehan recently had a visit from the Audubon Nature Institute’s Bugmobile.

Students were given a presentation on what makes a bug an insect and the different parts of an insect. During the presentation, each child was given the opportunity to touch a millipede and a black grasshopper.

Also shown to the students were a tarantula and a walking leaf insect from Southeast Asia.
