Spend a morning meeting some little-known critters! This program will feature a variety of native New England caterpillars, munching on their food plants right in front of you. There will be plenty to see and touch! Educators from the Caterpillar Lab will be there to teach you about caterpillar biology and to tell you incredible, but true stories about the creatures’ strange and surprising adaptations. Some caterpillars may be camouflaged to look like twigs or snakes. Some may have spectacular spines or brightly colored baubles. Stop by any time between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. You’re sure to learn something new!

Saturday, June 4, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Harris Center.
