     Join us for our BSV Winter Meeting. We are trying something different for our meeting! Instead of our traditional potluck, the meeting will now consist of informational mini-workshops. There will be three separate workshops presented by members: 1. Feeding Caterpillars (You Can't Save Them All) 2. Rearing & Raising  3. What Went Wrong? - The Dreaded "5 Ps": Pathogens, Parasitoids, Predators, Pesticides, and People. This will be an opportunity to learn and ask question about these aspects of raising butterflies and moths. There will be cookies and drinks supplied by the BSV, other displays, and of course the BSV Boutique will be open.

    • Virginia Beach Farmers Market 3640 Dam Neck Road Virginia Beach, VA 23453

    Join the BSV at the Strawberry Jamboree for our annual plant sale featuring a large selection of nectar and host plants along with information and supplies for raising caterpillars.
