We Have Butterflies!

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.

Thank you!
