Join us for a special visit from The Caterpillar Lab!

Come see a variety of New England caterpillar species showcased on open-air displays of local plants.

Get up close to enormous giant silk moth caterpillars, fierce-looking snake-mimicking caterpillars, convincing twig-mimicking caterpillars, and bubbly butterfly caterpillars.

Witness rare moments of metamorphosis and watch ecological relationships play out first-hand under a digital microscope.

Be sure to chat with the educators from The Caterpillar Lab--you're sure to discover something new!
