The kids (and the adults too!) enjoyed our visit to the Philadelphia Butterfly Pavilion. We learned that when monarch caterpillars are brought inside, they stand a much better chance of survival to adulthood when compared to being left outside to predation. Let us know if you are interested in fostering a monarch. You need a wire or mesh cage, and lots of milkweed (and we have plenty in the church meadow that you can bring home).
Here are just a few of the beautiful species of butterflies we saw on our trip to the Philadelphia Butterfly Pavilion. (Click to enlarge.)
