The Caterpillar Walk

July 27, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
The Caterpillar Walk

The Caterpillar Lab is moving in, and while the exhibit will be filled with munching critters offering lots to explore, the real story is the one happening in our many gardens where these creatures are living out their strange lives in the wild. Join Director of The Caterpillar Lab, Sam Jaffe, on an exploration of the Gardens; search for native caterpillars and other insects. Learn how The Caterpillar Lab finds their caterpillars, all about host plants and parasitoids and get caterpillar-finding secrets from one of the foremost caterpillar hunters in the world!

This walk is appropriate for naturalists, gardeners and explorers of all ages. However, it may not be appropriate for more casually-interested younger children. This walk is limited to 20 participants, so be at the Bosarge Family Education Center early to ensure your spot.
