Join us for bugs, science, photos, drinks, and fun!

Join Isabelle (Isa) Betancourt – entomologist, photographer, and science communicator – for an interactive evening of bugs!  Isa will share her work documenting insect biodiversity in Center City Philadelphia through collecting insects that get trapped in the iconic Swann Fountain. She’ll have lots of great photos to show and as a bonus, *you* can bring your own bug photos! Ask Isa about your bug pics – or bugs in general – or try to “stump the expert” with the weird and unusual bugs encountered during travels near or far!

Preview the evening through one of Isa’s weekly live-broadcasts (#bugscope) that shares the world of entomology with a global audience.

Come out for this GEO Travel Junkies event at Plays and Players’ Skinner Studio

Want Beers with your Bugs? You can do that at Quig’s Pub, known as the “actor’s speakeasy,” a private club inside Rittenhouse’s Plays and Players Theatre. 

Isa Betancourt, an explorer at heart, knew at a young age that she wanted to be either an astronaut or an entomologist. Her mom was happy when she went the entomology route.

We regret this venue is not accessible, and guests should expect to climb stairs.
