When: Saturdays & Sundays in October!
(AND Thanksgiving Monday!)

They're everywhere! Woolly bear caterpillars become more visible in late fall and this beloved creature is the focus of weekends in October.

Have you ever heard that woolly bears can predict the weather? We will reveal the truth about the woolly bear's stripes and you'll discover how they survive through the winter.

Come meet our own woolly bears up close & learn more about these fascinating critters!

Check out our Woolly Bear photo album on Facebook to see more pictures.
