Insect Day
Saturday, July 13
10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Looking for a chance to perfect your mud pie? Not bugged by bugs? Or maybe feathers tickle your fancy. Either way, you will have a BLAST(-off) at one (or all!) of our summer events.

Celebrate each day with educator-lead programs, hands on drop in activities, and community partners!

Join our Insect Day to explore the fun world of insects! Did you know that almost half of known animal species are insects? We think that’s something to celebrate! Embrace the things that bug you as we identify these amazing creatures up close, learn fun facts, and dress up in costumes!

Special Guest: The Caterpillar Lab!
Friday, July 12
Saturday, July 13
10:00 am – 3:00 pm

EcoTarium is excited to have The Caterpillar Lab join us for two back-to-back days (Friday, July 12 & Saturday, July 13), with a free-exploration program that allows visitors experience the incredible world of New England caterpillars!

This drop-in program will feature a variety of local caterpillar species and there will be plenty to see and touch! Guest educators will host stations demonstrating metamorphosis and caterpillar’s strange and surprising adaptations — caterpillars may be camouflaged to look like twigs or snakes, or have stinging spines or brightly colored baubles.

Check out these little-known native critters munching on plants right in front of you! Stay for a few minutes or for an hour; you’re sure to see something new!
