Caterpillars Count! is a volunteer community science project for measuring the seasonal variation, also known as phenology, and abundance of arthropods like caterpillars, beetles, and spiders found on the foliage of trees and shrubs. Join Senior Naturalist, Kristy Morley every Wednesday at 6:30pm throughout the summer at Crossways Preserve to collect data on the caterpillars and other arthropods there.
