|Description||Forest Defender is a fun experience to help teach Michigan resident and visitors about the invasive Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB). Players are tasked with collecting as many ALB's as they can in 60 seconds.
Players are given opportunities to learn more about the ALB and other native beetles, but are not forced to learn any more than they choose. The information is only limited to what is necessary as the version placed at state parks works in conjunction with the additional information found at the exhibits.
