This week, young participants at  were treated to an extra special event. After spending the past four weeks learning about butterflies and watching tiny caterpillars grow and build chrysalises, the kids helped release 40 newly-hatched butterflies into the park’s planting beds.

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.
