Keynote Speaker: Naturalist Sam Jaffe, founder of The Caterpillar Lab, on “The Natural Wonders of Cold Spring Park.”  Sam grew up playing in the park, collecting insects and identifying its plants & animals. He’s identified 150 species of birds, 32 butterflies and many species of reptiles, amphibians, insects and mammals in the park.

  • The park’s many diverse habitats and inhabitants;
  • How Sam is working with Zervas teachers to use the park as an outdoor classroom;
