Join us as The Caterpillar Lab, located in Marlborough, NH, takes over our PlayLabs and turns them into a mini version of their own lab space! Come see a huge variety of New England caterpillar species showcased on open-air displays of local plants. Get up close to enormous giant silk moth caterpillars, fierce-looking snake-mimicking caterpillars, convincing twig-mimicking caterpillars, and bubbly butterfly caterpillars. Witness rare moments of metamorphosis and watch ecological relationships play out first-hand under a digital microscope. Be sure to chat with the educators from The Caterpillar Lab—you're sure to discover something new! Learn more about The Caterpillar Lab at
