LISLE – Larger-than-life insects are invading The Morton Arboretum this summer as the arboretum celebrates the world of bugs with David Rogers' Big Bugs exhibition beginning Friday.

From Friday through Sept. 9, the arboretum will display sculptures of bee hives, lady bugs, spiders, grasshoppers and more insects – some nearly 10 feet tall – made of natural materials including willow, cedar, walnut, and other woods.

To celebrate the exhibition, the Arboretum is offering interactive, bug-themed activities all summer long.
