Creature Comforts Insect Curiosity Corner and Family Film Festival at Cine
Conference attendees, UGA students and faculty, and the general public will be invited to help kick off the conference with a family-friendly afternoon event in downtown Athens. Local partner and sponsor Creature Comforts will host insect-themed games as well as food and drinks featuring edible (and drinkable) insects from 3pm – 6pm. Brooklyn Bugs will also be providing some tasting samples. Across the street, Cine will be hosting a FREE screening The Bee Movie at 4pm. This will be the first of several events designed to engage local community partners, welcome Athens residents to the topic, and showcase Athens, Georgia for our national and international guests.
