The Caterpillar Lab (In person & Outdoors!)

The Caterpillar Lab comes to the Dedham Public Library.

Come meet some of the most amazing animals that live in and around New England (and also some humans who know a lot about them). See dozens of live examples, and learn about their fascinating and sometimes bizarre journey from tiny egg to full grown butterfly or moth.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Dedham Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

Note: The Dedham Public Library is happy to be able to provide safe, in-person programming again. We do require that patrons wear masks, maintain the social-distancing practice of six feet apart, and suggest the use of hand sanitizer before and after our programs.

Patrons that have tested positive for COVID-19, are waiting for COVID-19 test results, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have had close contact with a person who has tested positive for or who has symptoms of COVID-19, are not to attend in-person programs and should chose online programs, when available.
