The Ladybug Event is Back! Residents invited to Victoria Park on July 14
After a two-year hiatus, the City of Regina is pleased to announce that the ladybug event is back. Over 200,000 hungry ladybugs will be available for children, families and residents to release on Thursday, July 14 as part of our organic pest control program to help control aphids.
Join us from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. on the east side of Victoria Park to learn more about ladybugs and what they do to keep our trees and plants healthy. You can release your own ladybugs in Victoria Park or take them home to release in your own yard or a neighbourhood park.
While you're at the event, look for the recycling and composting booth for information and activities with the City of Regina’s Waste Diversion team.
Free parking for attendees is available in the Cornwall Centre Parkades (2183 Saskatchewan Drive and 1702 Hamilton Street), courtesy of Cornwall Centre. Bring your parkade ticket to the event and have it stamped by a City of Regina employee, then see Guest Services on the main floor of the Cornwall Centre to have it validated.
Ladybug-themed attire is welcome and encouraged. Ladybugs and treats will be distributed while quantities last.
Look for the Ladybug Release event page on the City of Regina’s Facebook page for more information.
