A half-hour Power Point presentation on Connecticut butterflies followed by a walk to find butterflies and perhaps any caterpillars that may be nearby. We will look at plants that are both important for nectar sources and are also hosts for caterpillars.

Pamm Cooper works at the UConn Home and Garden Education Center office. She also teaches the entomology and turf portions of the UConn Master Gardener Program. She worked for Dr. David Wagner (evolutionary biologist at UConn who specializes in Lepidoptera), collecting and raising caterpillars for a bio-survey of the Tankerhoosen DEEP property and the Belding Wildlife Management Area in Vernon, CT. She has also documented flora and fauna in various areas of Connecticut since 1995.
