$50

Egg

$50 helps the BugZooWoo purchase enough fresh fruits and vegetables for one day and enable visitors to "hatch" ideas of insect importance!

$100

Caterpillar

$100 fuels the BugZooWoo with new insect collections to excite visitors with the desire to learn more about the world of insects and allows us to develop a garden full of host plants that will provide leaves for the hungry collection.

$250

Chrysalis

$250 transforms old, outdated glass displays to new and dynamic vivariums that offer the animals a healthy environment and visitors a chance to get up close and personal with them (even when physically distanced) to learn how insects rule the world!

$500

Butterfly

$500 allows the BugZooWoo to spread its wings and fly to new levels of high quality education for visitors young and young at heart as we hope to raise funds to add microscopes and large screens to project the importance of insects!

$1,000

Migration

$1,000 transports the BugZooWoo from the collection of static displays to a new level of interactive learning which gives visitors the ability to travel many miles without leaving Ohio!
