BugYourFriends to Support Tyler Arboretum

bugdownloadcroppedWant to surprise your friends AND help raise money for Tyler Arboretum? Now’s your chance! We’re running a unique giving campaign this summer to raise money for our Annual Fund. Give a donation today to join in on the fun! And don’t forget to visit our Big Bugs exhibition through August 29!

$50 BUG my friend! – Pick a friend you’d like to BUG and we’ll temporarily place a 4 foot tall bug on their lawn. Our friendly bug will brighten their day and create a Facebook-worthy photo op for them to enjoy. After 2-7 days, the bug will find a new home. Your friend must live within 8 miles of Tyler. Help us raise more money for Tyler by keeping your identity a secret! We’ll ask your friend to donate $20 to find out who BUGGED them.

$20 Find out who BUGGED you! - Have you been BUGGED? Take a photo with your bug and tag it with #BugYourFriends on Tyler’s social media pages. Then make a donation to find out who BUGGED you! Within 2 business days, we’ll email you the name of your bugger.

$35 “Don’t BUG Me” Insurance – Not a fan of our adorable oversized bugs? You can still help raise money for Tyler! Buy “Don’t BUG Me” insurance and your yard will remain BUG free! If someone makes a donation to BUG you, we will ask them to pick another person.


Details: In order to BUG one of your friends, they must live within 8 miles of Tyler Arboretum – 515 Painter Road Media, PA 19063. We will need their name, address, and a brief description of their house (to make sure we’ve got the right one!). Depending on demand, it may take a while for your friend to be bugged. But not knowing exactly when it will happen is part of the fun! The bug will remain on their lawn for 2-7 days. For faster removal, please contact us by phone, Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm at 610-566-9134 x 209.

Questions? Email development@tylerarboretum.org or call 610-566-9134 x 209, Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm.
