Ladybugs on the Loose

Nature museum plans release

The Hudson Highlands Nature Museum plans to release native nine-spotted ladybugs (Coccinella novemnotata) on Saturday, June 23, at 10 a.m. at its Outdoor Discovery Center in Cornwall.

The official state insect has been on the decline and the program is part of an effort to re-establish local populations. After a short program, adults, families and children ages 5 and older can help distribute the bugs. See
