Farewell, Little Caterpillars.
Sad news, everyone. After having completed their cocoons, the Cecropia Moth caterpillars will leave the Traverwood Branch library this Sunday, and return to the grounds of the Leslie Science and Nature Center. They will overwinter in their cocoons nestled safely in a secure outdoor enclosure, and will be released into the wild when they emerge as North America's largest native moths next spring. Thank you to all who visited them, and you still have a few more days if you want to check out the cocoons.
