About 'The Bug Lady'!

(Please allow time for this page to load properly!-Thanks!)

Hi!

My name is Lisa Porter, also known as ‘The Bug Lady'!

The Bugs and I have been working together for around 12 years now. We were originally based within the Education Team at Harewood House Trust, Leeds providing school visits and outreach to local schools.

In February 2012 I set up 'The Bug Lady'!

Before I became The Bug Lady I've worked in a variety of roles including; primary school teacher, field teacher, outdoor and environmental education instructor. I have been lucky to work in lots of different settings both formally and informally and with all ages and abilities from nursery aged children to adults.

My bug collection is varied and constantly changing and expanding! But one important consideration remains that all species are safe and friendly so that myself and workshop participants can interact with them as much as possible.

Myself and the bugs keep ourselves busy visiting schools, nurseries, parties and events across Yorkshire and further afield.
