Caterpillars: The Whole Story
Thursday, August 23, 6:30-7:45PM

Presenter: Sam Jaffe, Direcor of the Caterpillar Lab

Sam Jaffe, Director of The Caterpillar Lab, will present a photograph and video packed talk that explores backyard pollinators, plants, and the many caterpillars that are positioned at the center of it all. He will introduce a "Whole Story" perspective of natural history study and appreciation that just might make you reconsider a herbivore's place in our cultivated environments. After his talk Sam will be happy to discuss particular host plants and habitats that can be used to attract ever more native insects to our biodiverse gardens and managed landscapes.

Sam Jaffe is a New England based naturalist, photographer, and educator who has been working with native insects since a very early age. Sam grew up in Eastern Massachusetts chasing birds, mucking through ponds, and turning over leaves. For the last seven years he has been photographing caterpillars and organizing programs to promote these special creatures to the public. In 2013 he founded "The Caterpillar Lab" in Keene NH and he now travels across the country working with museums, nature centers, schools, and individual teachers helping native insects find their place in our everyday lives. When he is not behind the camera or tending his zoo of caterpillars, you can invariably find Sam up to his waist in vegetation.
