The Chief Logan Caterpillar Craze

You’ve seen butterflies flying around, but what do they look like before they get their wings? Another opportunity to learn about butterflies as spring progresses into summer.

Join Naturalist Lauren Cole at 9:00 a.m. at Chief Logan State Park Shelter #3 to learn about caterpillars–what they are, how they live, what they eat, and what they become! After learning about these stages, we’ll head to and into the nearest Pollinator Zone at Chief Logan State Park to look for caterpillars on leaves. We’ll take advantage of the morning for about two hours.

Chief Logan State Park is creating Pollinator Zones to expand Monarch and West Virginia White butterfly conservation efforts. Learning about caterpillars helps understand what plants help butterflies and what plants harm the larva.

This activity is free to attend and open to the public. Caterpillar Craze is also a YPP activity. Please wear closed toe shoes or boots.
