Butterfly Release in the Purdy Butterfly House
Saturday July 23, 2016:
Anderson Education Center Classroom

Combine hands-on science with a sense of wonder and you have a butterfly release! Join us in stocking our butterfly house by helping release newly emerged butterflies into their new home, the Purdy Butterfly House.

Enjoy an informative family-friendly presentation in the Anderson Education Center classroom followed by time in the Purdy Butterfly House. Every participant will be given their own tiny take-out box with one fluttering butterfly ready to emerge. You'll want to bring your camera to capture this unique experience!
