Monarch Butterfly Celebration A Success

22 Sep

The Monarch Butterfly Celebration on Saturday, September 12 was a great success.   With almost 100 attendees, the day started off with the Little Miss Butterfly Pageant then continued into the Fancy Shawl Dance Presentations and Butterfly Adoption & Release.

The Monarch Butterfly Celebration began as a collaboration between the Mount Pleasant Schools and the community. Now in its third year, the celebration has seemed to take flight in representing and appreciating the symbol of change and rebirth the butterfly portrays. Volunteers and attendees were able to partake in several activities such as storytelling, the painting of a butterfly mural, and face painting, as well as the educational side behind the Monarch’s life cycle and journey. Overall, 28 monarchs were released with 15 chrysalis’ still waiting to be hatched, tagged, and released. Adopters can track their butterfly’s journey at MonarchWatch.org.  

Miigwetch to all the volunteers, staff, and guests for helping to make this event a great success!
