    Creepy Crawly Carnival

    What’s the Creepy Crawly Campaign all about?

    NCAP is kicking off our first annual fundraiser to protect beneficial bugs and creatures. Worldwide, insect populations are in decline. Ecosystems and all other creatures in the food chain depend on diverse insect populations. Our regional business league sponsors recognize that insects are critical to the health of the Northwest and have pledged support to protect our creepy crawly friends from pesticide exposure.

    What’s our goal?

    We aim to raise $10,000 to help protect beneficial bugs and creatures. The funds will be used to conduct education and advocate for pesticide reform.

    When does is happen?

    October 22 thru October 31, 2019

    October 29 from 5pm-8pm we celebrate our progress at the Creepy Crawly Carnival at Whirled Pies. NCAP will have resources and crafts about beneficial bugs, a photo booth, music, raffle baskets and more! 

    How does it work?

    Each year, local sustainability minded business leaders commit matching funds ahead of a public Creepy Crawly Carnival event and a 10 day social media/crowdfunding campaign. What you give during the campaign period is matched, dollar for dollar, up to the amount of matching funds committed by the participating companies. We will showcase tips on how to protect beneficial bugs throughout the campaign.
