Experience with us a closeup exploration of the lives of insects! Special cameras and microphones provide a bug's-eye view of the world. Free and open to all. Bring a lawn chair or cushion, as chairs will be in limited supply. For more information, visit http://kingstongreenways.org/ or call 609-750-1821.

Three years in the making (and two years just to create the equipment used), "Microcosmos" is a one-of-a-kind film. Critic Roger Ebert called it "...an amazing film that allows us to peer deeply into the insect world and marvel at creatures we casually condemn to squishing." Janet Maslin said of it "...this quick, captivating film offers a taste of the exotic to viewers of any stripe (or spot). And it's a breathtaking reminder that Mother Nature remains the greatest special effects wizard of all."
