The Caterpillar Lab fosters greater appreciation and care for the complexity and beauty of our local natural history through live caterpillar educational programs, research initiatives, and photography and film projects. We believe that an increased awareness of one’s local environment is the foundation on which healthy and responsible attitudes towards the broader natural systems of this world is built.

New England’s high season for caterpillars has come to a close, but that doesn’t mean we are closing our doors!  For the FIRST TIME, our free open hours will continue THROUGHOUT THE WINTER.  On a cold day, come meet some BIG and STRANGE tropical insects, explore the overwintering habits of native species, and use our FAMOUS microscope stations.  See you soon!
