Caterpillar Identification and Collection

May 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Caterpillars are all around us-and establishing a healthy ecosystem for them is vital if we want to support local populations of butterflies and moths. Join Erin Garrett with U of I Extension to learn identification characteristics for common caterpillars, explore the best host plants for them, and see how you can
contribute to caterpillar citizen science. Then, build your own caterpillar collection device and join us on a short hike to practice collecting and identifying
caterpillars. Registration is required.
