Willard Library is live streaming the amazing metamorphosis from caterpillar to Painted Lady Butterfly.
Willard downtown and the Helen Warner Branch both have caterpillars, and they may be watched anytime. To witness this exciting transformation, click on the location you wish to watch:
Watch as the caterpillars eat the concentrated food at the bottom of the cups. As they eat, they crawl, spin silk, and grow to many times their original sizes.
Within 5-10 days, the caterpillars will make the fascinating change into chrysalises.
Then, chrysalsies will be moved into a habitat, where in 7-10 more days metamorphosis occurs, and they become Painted Lady Butterflies!
And, eventually we will release them outside!
