Exploring Boulder’s hidden biodiversity: Caterpillar hunting on the Front Range

There is more to local biodiversity than meets the eye. We will explore some of the smaller players in these natural systems, focusing on the world of caterpillars. Why do caterpillars eat some plants and not others? How do they defend themselves against their enemies? Join us in investigating the wealth of survival strategies used by our local caterpillars, and the evolutionary forces that make them tick.
