Caterpillars: The Whole Story

Member $5, Non-member $20
Sam Jaffe, Director of The Caterpillar Lab, will present a photograph and video packed talk that explores backyard pollinators, plants, and the many caterpillars that are positioned at the center of it all. He will introduce a “Whole Story” perspective of natural history study and appreciation that just might make you reconsider a herbivore’s place in our cultivated environments. After his talk Sam will be happy to discuss particular host plants and habitats that can be used to attract ever more native insects to our biodiverse gardens and managed landscapes.
