Winter Lecture Series: Discovering Caterpillars with Stefanie Paeg (Feb. 19, 2023)

Start
Sunday, February 19 2:00 pm

Sunday, February 19 3:00 pm

Free

Everyone loves butterflies, and with initiatives like National Moth Week, more and more people are gaining an appreciation for moths. However, the adult forms of these insects are only the tip of a very large iceberg! Caterpillars are an intermediate life stage that display every bit of the beauty—and considerably more of the bizarre—of the more commonly encountered adults. This program will provide an introduction to finding and appreciating these often-overlooked marvels.

Stefanie Paeg is an Ohio-based naturalist and interpreter whose career was sparked by a childhood fascination with backyard wildflowers and insects. Prior to returning to her home state of Ohio, Paeg spent several years traveling the Midwest and Eastern US working at various county parks and environmental organizations, “geeking out” about nature wherever she found it. She is an active volunteer with the Midwest Native Plant Society and is a certified interpretive guide through the National Association for Interpretation. She is currently the camps manager and environmental educator at Gorman Heritage Farm in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Stefanie will be joining us virtually for this program.
