  • PREPARING FOR THE FAIR: What’s buggin’ you?

    When Gabe Stephenson sees a bug, he doesn’t run for the fly swatter. Instead, he reaches for his net and jars.

    He is already preparing his entomology project for the Grant County Fair.

    Stephenson has been participating in 4-H since he was 9-years-old and has been involved with entomology, the study of insects, for two years. Stephenson creates an insect collection in which he captures, freezes, defines and displays different specimens.
