UrbanPromiseʼs CamdenForward School to released Monarch Butterflies from their very own Butterfly Garden
today. The children of UrbanPromiseʼs elementary and middle school (The CamdenForward School) celebrated the release of Monarch Butterflies that they have nurtured from eggs through the caterpillar and chrysalis stages to regal Monarchs that are now ready to join in a 2000 mile mass migration to Mexico. The eggs were collected from milkweed plants grown in a Butterfly Garden that students and volunteers keep and maintain on the UrbanPromise campus.
The Monarch Butterfly project has been a truly holistic learning experience, involving nature, science, writing, and art, including a mural created on the wall of an UrbanPromise building facing the butterfly garden.
