Here, they watched a presenter teach about butterflies, and got to volunteer to act out the stages of the butterfly's life cycle.
Afterwards, cooling off in a stream was in order!
We then adopted a butterfly! The way it works is that we adopted a little caterpillar, and they gave us the food, instructions through the life stages, and an invite to a release celebration event, where all the butterflies can be released together! We have been taking the caterpillar's picture every day. He has already grown and changed so much each day!
Day 1: Tiny
Day 2: a bit larger with new white spots
Day 3: big change, paler color, appears to have shedded some black "skin," and is quite a bit fatter!
