The Lives of Ohio BUGS: 'Fallin' for BUGS! (get it?)

    - Engaging lessons on how Ohio bugs get ready for winter.
    - How do they know winter is coming if we have a warm fall?
    - How do trees know winter is coming and what do they do
      about it?

Autumn is always the showiest time of the year for bugs and most other Ohio animals since it's the last gasp before a long, cold winter. This is the best time to schedule your wildlife content into your curriculum - especially bugs!

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. 
Stanley Horowitz

Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes.  Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits. 
Samuel Butler

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. 
John Lubbock

The color of springtime is in the flowers, the color of winter is in the imagination.
