Happy Earth Day: Butterfly Bliss

Happy Earth Day!

Here are a few images from the Butterfly Release Event at the Danville Science Center last weekend. I volunteered to do crafts with kids {we made caterpillars out of construction paper with adorable googly eyes} so I actually didn’t get a chance to take that many photos. Despite the rain and tornado warning the turnout was rather large and the Butterfly Garden was full!

I watched the noon release where the butterflies were carefully let loose in their new home. Young lepidopterists-in-the-making helped the butterflies to orient themselves. It was a rather magical day. I hope you enjoy and appreciate the Earth today. Spend some time outside! Mari{posa}
