We love that our garden attracts so many beautiful creatures like this lovely butterfly!

Does anyone know what kinds of butterfly this is?

A Butterfly Invasion!

A Butterfly Invasion!

Over 70 beautiful butterflies landed in Sproutside this morning.

What’s special about these butterflies? They were made by kids from the local Flint Community Schools who are visiting us for fun field trips all week. The students learned important new science terms such as camouflage and bilateral symmetry.

We expect more butterflies to arrive tomorrow morning, and we can’t wait to see how pretty they are!

Thank You AAF-GF!

This past Wednesday the museum hosted a free day to celebrate the generosity of the AAF-GF. This group provided a wonderful advertising campaign for the museum. Keep your eye out for our commercials!

For some of our activities in Sproutside we made chromatography butterflies and flowers.

Here is one of our friends coloring what is going to be a beautiful butterfly!
