Don't bug me!

About 50 children and adults gathered to learn about insects. L.E.A.F. stands for “Learn-Explore-Appreciate-Focus.”

The next “Fun at the Park” education event at the park is 1 p.m., Oct. 20. Called Fun at the Park, organizers hope to release hundreds of thousands of lady bugs into the park.
