Our classroom caterpillars/pupae are now emerging as beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies!
If student’s are interested, please have them bring in a flower from your garden and we will conduct experiments regarding Painted Lady nectar preferences and flower attractiveness to the butterflies. Please ensure that any flowers brought in are pesticide free/organic.
For the Primary students: I have arranged with VanDusen Botanical Garden to release our butterflies there. We will release them on Monday, June 4th in the afternoon. The cost of the VanDusen visit will be $5.00 per person. Please pick up and sign your field trip forms on Wednesday, if possible. As allotments are now closed, please provide payment to Shannon.
