This episode of The Children’s Hour will bug you! We get bugged with the ABQ Biopark’s Curator of Entomology, Jason Schaller. Jason’s passion for insects is infectious. We explore Jason’s stand out, favorite bugs around North America region by region. Plus we hear from the kids in the Extinction Diaries about the plight of insects around the world. Mixed with great music, jokes, and plenty of kids commentary to entertain and educate children of all ages.
The Children’s Hour is supported by the Cultural Services Department and the Urban Enhancement Trust Fund at the City of Albuquerque, city councilor Pat Davis, as well as Bernalillo County, New Mexico’s Commission. This project is supported in part by an award from New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts. We also have support from Electric Playhouse and numerous foundations also support our work including the Infinite Gesture Fund, The Limestone Fund, and The Laughing Buddha Fund.
