Lincoln, Neb. — “BugFest,” the annual open house for the University of Nebraska­­–Lincoln’s Department of Entomology, is 1 to 4 p.m., Sept. 30 in Entomology Hall on East Campus.

The event is free and open to the public.

This year’s BugFest will feature the Henry Doorly Zoo tiger beetle rearing program, scientific illustration, the secret life of flies, life in a dung pat and insects in art.
