Cup Hop

The CUP HOP continues! Fly into a local coffee shop and add a lucky ladybug mug to your collection while supporting the Ogden Nature Center!

For a $20 donation you will receive a collectable ladybug mug, filled with a specialty coffee, tea or cocoa at the coffee shop where you purchase your mug, at time of purchase only.

In celebration of the Ogden Nature Center’s end-of-year friend & fund drive, and to give back to the coffee shops who always support the Ogden Nature Center, a portion of your donation will go to the Ogden Nature Center, and a portion will go to the coffee shops!

A lucky ladybug mug belongs in your set and matches the raven, bluebird, tortoise and squirrel mugs from years past. Cup Hop cups will only be available on the following dates, and at these locations, while supplies last!  Each shop will have a limited supply beginning on their starting date.  And only while supplies last!

Almost all world cultures believe that a ladybug is lucky! If a ladybug is held in the hand while making a wish, some believe the direction that it flies away shows from where your luck will come.

Some cultures believe ladybugs carry away illness if they land on you and fly away unassisted. Counting spots will tell you any number of things such as how many months of good fortune one will have in the coming year, how many children the person holding it will have, and/or how much money one may expect to gain. They are often seen as symbols of keeping safe and healthy, which is why ladybugs often appear on children’s clothing.

Because ladybugs eat many of the insects that cause damage to garden plants, a good population of the beetles will prevent the need for harmful pesticides.
