The UGA Bug Dawgs strive to educate the local community and spread awareness of entomology-related topics, causes and issues. The organization often interacts with the local community by bringing living insects, centipedes, millipedes, scorpions and spiders as well as museum specimens from Georgia and other parts of the world to schools, libraries, organizations or community centers for interactive display.
