The Caterpillar Hunter, a free program for kids of all ages, is planned Thursday at the Boardman and Hermiston public libraries. A professional theater company will take attendees on a safari through a common North American vegetable garden.
Based on the beloved character of the late Steve Irwin, the Caterpillar Hunter shrinks himself and sets off to explore the terrain, pursuing elusive bugs and strange herbage while facing adventures along the way.
The programs are presented by The Traveling Lantern Theater Co., based in Portland.
The Caterpillar Hunter begins at 10 a.m. at Hermiston Public Library, 235 E. Gladys Ave., and at 3 p.m. at the Boardman Library.
