Caterpillars in Residence with The Caterpillar Lab
Squam Lakes Natural Science Center hosts The Caterpillar Lab featuring a huge variety of New England caterpillar species with plenty to see and touch! Educators from The Caterpillar Lab will teach all about metamorphosis and tell incredible but true stories about the strange and surprising adaptations of these creatures. Some caterpillars are camouflaged to look like twigs or snakes. Some have stinging spines or brightly colored baubles. Visitors will learn about these little-known native critters munching on their food plants right at eye level. For more information, see www.thecaterpillarlab.com. The Caterpillar Lab exhibit is generously sponsored by Cottage Place on Squam Lake and the Inn on Golden Pond
Cost: The Caterpillar Lab is included in regular trail admission ($22 for adults; $20 for seniors age 65+; $16 for youth ages 3 to 15; free for children 2 and under; free for members)
