Bug Club Magazine
The Bug Club Magazine (BCM) is for children and young people interested in insects and other terrestrial invertebrates. The BCM is published six times a year and contains exciting articles on all sorts of creepy crawlies, field reports from our events, fun things to do and make, games to play and many more exciting, educational and interesting features. The Magazine also contains Doodle Bug, a colour section featuring pictures and drawings by Bug Club members.
The Magazine is aimed at members aged between 5 and 15, the average reading age for most articles being approximately 10. Members receive the Bug Club Magazine in February, April, June, August, October and December each year.
The Bug Club was founded in 1992, became the junior section of the Amateur Entomologists' Society in 1997 and, as of 2009, is a joint venture between the Amateur Entomologists' Society and the Royal Entomological Society.
