Join naturalists Sam Jaffe and Cherrie Corey for a wondrous afternoon exploring the secretive realms of caterpillars at Great Meadows NWR/Concord.  Walking the Dike Trail, we'll look for signs of the varied caterpillars that make their home in ground vegetation and overhanging forest canopies.  Sam is well know for his caterpillar expertise and engaging teaching style and will reveal a hidden larval universe that will amaze you.  Cherrie will help to weave our discoveries into the context of a deepended sense of shared place with these amazing metamorphic creatures.  Along the way, you will also be introduced to butterflies, dragonflies, beetles, and other insects that cross our path.
