Woolly Bear caterpillars are the red and black banded caterpillars we often see wandering across the grass in the fall, on their way to find a spot to hibernate for winter. They stay safe from the cold under old wood or dead leaves in the forests and fields or in your backyard. If you know where to look for them, you can peek at them as they sleep curled up in a ball, waiting to spin their silk cocoons in late winter. After just a few weeks in their cocoons, they will emerge in the spring as adult Isabella tiger moths. Advanced reservations are required. To register for this program, which has limited enrollment please contact info@sofo.org or call 631-537-9735. Spots will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
