The Caterpillar Lab at the Putney Farmers’ Market Sunday, May 28, 11-3

This weekend The Caterpillar Lab is joining us with a free-exploration program. Come by and experience the incredible world of New England caterpillars! This drop-in program will feature a variety of local caterpillar species, and there will be plenty to see and touch! Educators from The Caterpillar Lab will teach you all about metamorphosis and tell 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 stinging spines or brightly colored baubles. Check out some little-known native critters munching on their food plants right in front of you. Stay for a few minutes or for an hour; you’re sure to see something new!
