NEW: Caterpillar Life History Guide

March 01, 2019

In the spring of 2019 we launched an ambitious project to present TCL founder Sam Jaffe's extensive library of native caterpillar, pupa, and moth photographs in a beautiful and information filled gallery format.  This project is in its infancy, so check back regularly to see our "Life History Guide to the Caterpillars of New England" grow and grow.  We are hoping to create a unique and valuable resource!  Current Project Updates:  March 21st 2019 - initial trial phase.  Refining gallery of Spilosomina tiger moths.
