Caterpillars everywhere

Uploaded: Mar 26, 2016

Last week I took our kids to Burgess Park. It ended up being a very short park outing after we discovered all of the tiny fuzzy caterpillars crawling around the equipment. I completely forgot how these caterpillars take over some of our parks this time of year.

Thankfully, there are many other local parks not covered by oak trees. And, luckily, our son is interested in creepy crawly critters, so we were able to turn our short park outing into a longer conversation about bugs and insects.

Have you decided to change your plans because of these caterpillars yet?
