On Wednesday, we invited kids and their caretakers to release butterflies into the park’s planting beds, and watch as they spread their wings to take their first flight. Photo by Rowa Lee
 

This week, young participants at Rowa Lee, our photo of the week shows Kylah Bruno, our High Line Kids Play Leader and graduate of our High Line Youth Corps, gently helping a butterfly prepare to fly off into the park.

Thanks to MetLife Foundation, we are able to host Wild Wednesdays every week in the summer. Bring the kids and join us for Wild Wednesdays in August to learn about nature’s composters: worms.
