Kids will be smarter about arthropods after visiting the Central Park Zoo on May 19.

Seven- to 10-year-olds, who enjoy creepy, crawly insects, will love this class at the zoo, where they’ll learn all about the bugs who make their homes there.

Taught by an urban ecologist, children will collect insects from various habitats around the zoo and sort the collections to try to identify the species.

Each participant will take home his or her own insect trap to collect and observe the ones they find in their own neighborhoods.

“Bugs, Bugs, Bugs” at the Central Park Zoo [830 Fifth Ave. at East 65th Street in Manhattan, (212) 439-6583] May 19, 10-11:30 am. $35 members, $40 non-members. For more, visit www.centralparkzoo.com.
