Photo stories: ‘Bugs and Mugs’ impress youth at Huron River Day

The Exhibit Museum of Natural History joined Huron River Day festivities July 9 by sponsoring ‘Bugs and Mugs,’ an activity station that helped visitors identify some of the Huron River’s smallest inhabitants—insects. Participants also examined some of the area’s wetland plant and animal invaders (non-native species). At left, Eli Godin, age 2, was intrigued by the Museum’s equipment and gave U-M Photo Services photographer Paul Jaronski a ‘mug’ of his own. Eli and his parents, Sharon and Anthony Godin of Ypsilanti, came to Huron River Day because they wanted to learn more about water quality and how to preserve and protect the river and its native species.
