The Department of Conservation is holding its 4th annual Insect-O-Rama Saturday at the Northwest Regional Office on the campus of Missouri Western State University. Cox says patrons of the event will have an opportunity for a rare culinary experience as an entomophagy demonstration will take place during the event. An insect chef will bring some pickled insects and cook bugs in a live exhibition.

In addition to the cooking demonstration, monarch butterfly experts and a beekeeper will be on hand to make presentations. The event kicks off at ten o’clock and runs through noon.
