About Us

The Caterpillar Lab is a unique non-profit educational outreach organization based in Marlborough NH. Each year, thousands of caterpillars of hundreds of native species are reared at the lab and utilized as a resource for place-based natural history education all across New England. Though TCL’s primary mission involves direct person to person to caterpillar outreach, it also engages in a myriad of other related activities including: film, photography, and art initiatives; ecology, conservation, and evolutionary biology research; and resource development, curriculum building, and teacher trainings. 

The Caterpillar Lab deals with a very specific subject, but by examining caterpillars from diverse perspectives, and by looking ever closer into their lives and ecological interactions, the lab ends up communicating some very BIG ideas. The lab’s work expertly highlights the meaning of ecology, the importance of biodiversity, the potential outcomes of climate change, the intersection between the arts and sciences, and the reasons we should all be working to preserve these creatures and many others in the world around us. TCL is a small organization with a broad imagination and an ever-increasing impact in New England and beyond.
