The Department of Entomology’s Bug House held its annual Halloween Open House on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013, where it drew in around 150 children and adults between 1-4 p.m., including Brad Seyffert, a 10-year-old Mason boy who donated supplies to the Bug House for his birthday wish. The Bug House runs on a limited budget, so the staff and volunteers were thrilled when Brad decided to give rather than receive for his birthday, and came in to donate a glass aquarium filled with supplies. According to the Lansing State Journal, Brad has his own bug collection and has been visiting the Bug House since he was 5. Read the rest of Brad’s story featured in the Lansing State Journal.

If you’d like to follow in Brad’s footsteps and pay it forward, consider donating to the Bug House today.

The Bug House would like to give a huge thanks to volunteers Rob Morrison, Emily Morrison, Nicole Quinn, Jessica Kansman, Fremont Scott, Courtney Weatherbee, Julie Kaczor and, of course, staff members Gary Parsons and Jennifer Verba for helping make this event possible. Thank you for volunteering your time to help make this event a success, along with the Entomology Department for its continued support.
