This interpretive trail provides food for butterflies, moths and skippers (collectively known as Lepidoptera) during both the caterpillar and adult stages. Most adult Lepidoptera are generalists that drink nectar from a variety of flowers, but many caterpillars can survive only by feeding on specific types of plants. As development continues to threaten local biodiversity, this trail provides the plants necessary to support 23 species of caterpillars, an essential part of the food web.
