Second-grade girls from Pittsfield and the surrounding area are invited to a special Girl Scout bug program from 3 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 24, at First Baptist Church at 88 South St.

Girls will be able to view hissing cockroaches courtesy of CatsEye Pest Control and ask questions about bugs with a CatsEye specialist. A special bug craft and bug-inspired snack also will be included.

The activities will complete some of the requirements for the Girl Scout Brownie bug badge. The cost of the program is $15, which includes a 2012-13 membership to Girl Scouts; financial assistance is available.

Information about new troop options will be available at the program.

For more information to register, contact Girl Scout membership development specialist Rebecca Dravis at (413) 588-2071 or
