Hi! I'm Elisabeth

I've been fascinated by insects since I was a little kid growing up in rural Grand Isle, Vermont.  It was always a treat to find a Monarch caterpillar to bring home and raise in a jar.  One of my biggest influences was a man named Jim Hedbor, who was my best friend's dad.  He was a butterfly and moth collector and had a fabulous set of drawers in their living room full of beautiful mounted creatures.  

As an adult I have spent hours researching how to best rear these disappearing beauties for the most success.  I want to share that with anyone else that is interested in helping save this species.  Please feel free to email me using the form below for advice, questions, or comments.  Thank you for reading my blog!
