Audubon Community Nature Center
Jamestown, N.Y. – Caterpillars mature into beautiful butterflies and fascinating moths.
You can learn how to find and raise a variety of caterpillars at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Caterpillar Wrangling, Thursday, September 6, 5-6:30 p.m.
Many caterpillars, including Monarchs and silk moths, can use extra help to restore their populations. Discover how you can help at this hands-on workshop.
Caterpillars can be very fussy eaters and may only eat one kind of food. You can learn how to identify and find the proper food for different caterpillars, what containers to use, and how to overwinter cocoons for insects that don’t emerge until the following year.
Instructor Jeff Tome has been raising Monarch caterpillars for years. He has recently branched out to raise a variety of other caterpillars and moths as well.
The workshop fee is $12 or $10 for Nature Center Members and children ages 9-15. Paid reservations are required by Tuesday, September 4. They can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or online through the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.
