caterpillar

Establishing a healthy ecosystem for caterpillars is vital to supporting local populations of butterflies and moths. Learn the types of caterpillars you have in your garden and what butterflies they become in a free online webinar at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 23.

Erin Garrett, University of Illinois Extension energy and environmental stewardship educator, will discuss the caterpillar life stage, why and how to support caterpillars, and how to identify more than 30 species! Caterpillars of our more desirable moths and butterflies are included in this presentation, as opposed to common pest species.

Registration is required. If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in programming, contact Garrett. Early requests are strongly encouraged to allow sufficient time for meeting your needs.
