BVE Fifth Grade Creates Butterfly Way Station

            The Monarch butterfly population feeds on milkweed during their annual migration from Mexico to the United States.  This primary source of food for the traveling butterfly is declining, and so is the Monarch population.  The Fifth Grade and AIM classes at Burton Valley worked along side our fabulous Master Gardener, Kim Curiel, to create a Butterfly Way-Station to help the Butterflies on their journey.

            Starting with more than 1,000 milkweed seeds, students spent time planting and tending to the milkweed seeds in the Garden’s hothouse, waiting for them to sprout.  Once the seedlings were ready, kids spent an afternoon transplanting and watering their new Butterfly Way-Station in the BVE Garden.  Now we wait.  Come-on Monarchs!  Breakfast is ready!

            Check out the slide show of BVE students planting seedlings!
