Calling All Caterpillars!

Allendale's Lee Memorial Libary wants your caterpillars!

Once again, the library is hosting butterflies in the making.
If you see a caterpillar on fennel, milkweed, parsley or dill in your yard, bring it to the library and we’ll help protect it until it climbs into its cocoon and emerges as a butterfly.
The library has also ordered several cages that Allendale residents can raise the caterpillar at home.
A Black Swallowtail Caterpillar is already taking advantage of its digs in the library and is now accepting visitors.
"Butterfly Summer" is funded by a generous grant from the Winifred M. and George P. Pitkin Foundation.
