To partake in the counting of caterpillars you can attend a naturalist led presentation and one or more guided caterpillar walks. If you would rather set out on your own counting caterpillars, you can pick up a count packet at either the front desk of the Hemlock Lodge or in the Nature Center. The packet will include instructions, a caterpillar photo identification guide, a count checklist, and a park map. You can count for thirty minutes or all day!
