Boylston: “Caterpillars of Massachusetts” show at Tower Hill Botanic Garden

CaterpillarTowerHill2Boylston – Visitors to Tower Hill Botanic Garden will get a rare chance to see a wide variety of spectacular, and often bizarre, caterpillars up close and learn their secrets Saturday, Aug. 23, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., as Sam Jaffe presents his “Caterpillars of Massachusetts” show. Also, Sunday, Aug. 24, from 1-4 p.m., Jaffe will bring program participants on a caterpillar safari at Tower Hill, where he will explain how he finds these elusive insects.


Jaffe, a lifelong naturalist, trained biologist, photographer, and educator, runs The Caterpillar Lab, based in Keene, N.H., and is “passionate about showcasing the amazing diversity of northeastern caterpillars.” His most recent photography exhibits of native caterpillars can be seen at the MIT Center for Theoretical Physics in Cambridge and in the hallways of Antioch University New England in Keene.


The one-day show is free with admission, while the Sunday caterpillar walk is $25 for members and $40 for non-members. For more information, visit www.towerhillbg.org or call 508-869-6111. Tower Hill is located at 11 French Dr., Boylston.
