We have Butterflies!

The first batch of Painted Lady Butterflies has hatched! Watching the cycle from caterpillar to cocoon to butterfly never stops amazing us. Each day the staff and many patrons stop by my office window in anticipation of seeing a new and remarkable phase in this promise of spring and renewal.

If you have not had a chance to come in and see this exhibit, the second batch have spun their cocoon and will probably hatch this week some time.

The first batch of butterflies will be released this afternoon, weather permitting. Maybe you will see one flying around!
