At Taylor Creek Visitor Center in South Lake Tahoe, young campers will look under logs, among plants, and in tree bark in search of hidden insects. They will also learn what these bugs eat and their important jobs in the ecosystem. Note: Drop-off locations will vary by day. Usually carpooling with other campers is a good option and can be arranged by you and other parents on the first day of camp.
