The Chief Logan Caterpillar Craze

You’ve seen butterflies flying around, but what do they look like before they get their wings?

Join Naturalist Lauren Cole at 11:00 a.m. across the road from the Chief Logan Recreation Center to learn all about caterpillars–what they are, how they live, what they eat, and what they become! After learning about them, we’ll head into the nearest Pollinator Zone to look and see if we can find any caterpillars on leaves. (The recreation center is located on the entrance road to Chief Logan Lodge about 1/2 mile off US 119, Exit 30.5.)

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.
