Get immersed in entomology on "Wild Thursday" at a free presentation for adults Aug. 23 at Montana Wild, 2668 Broadwater Ave., next to Spring Meadow Lake State Park off Highway 12 West in Helena.

This "Wild Thursday" program is geared toward adults. Youngsters 9 and older can attend but must be accompanied by an adult who is participating in the program. Space is limited and will fill up quickly. Register early by calling Montana Wild at 444-9944.
