Davis, Calif. — "Happy Holidays!" and "Season's Greetings!" mean "Happy Bug Collecting!" at the Bohart Museum of Entomology, UC Davis.

"It is great that Martha Stewart Living has recognized some of the cool insect-themed gifts we have at the Bohart Museum," said Tabatha Yang, education and outreach coordinator at the Bohart.

"A complete insect collecting kit makes a great gift for budding entomologists, whatever their age," Yang said. "No assembly required. The recipient just needs to get outside and start exploring nature."
