Bring your magnifying glass Saturday, May 17, and join the hunt for caterpillars led by Texas Discovery Gardens staff.

Spiky, smooth, furry, shiny, red, black, yellow, green or striped learn to identify which type of butterfly each caterpillar will become.

Visitors will see the evidence left behind when a caterpillar visits and discover what a picky eater the caterpillar is despite having a voracious appetite.

Guests will learn which perennials and annuals to put in their garden to attract caterpillars so they can have all life stages of the butterfly in their yards.

The exhibit is geared for all ages, so bring the whole family.
