Bug Ambassadors interpret live animal exhibits, engage visitors in learning, and assist staff with live animal presentations.

Bug Ambassadors must be 16 years of age or older, complete the training course, and commit to one weekly shift for one year. A contribution of $30.00 helps cover costs of training materials and uniforms.
