Forest Caterpillars Key to Birdlife

Jim McCormac
NEW PHILADELPHIA, OHIO – The August 7 meeting of the East Central Ohio Forestry Association (ECOFA) will feature Jim McCormac, non-game wildlife specialist with the Ohio Division of Wildlife.  The 8 PM program will feature excellent photography and narratives about caterpillars which are such an important food source that without them most songbirds would go extinct.  The world of caterpillars is beautifully ornate, full of trickery and chemical warfare, and both jaw-droppingly amazing and gruesomely stunning.

ECOFA is an organization of persons interested in improving their woodlands and in forestry-related topics.   The public is cordially invited to attend the free meetings which are held monthly at McDonald-Marlite Lewis Conference Center, 143 McDonald Drive NW in New Philadelphia.
