Starting the Week With a Butterfly Release


This morning we released a pair of Monarch butterflies into Jill’s Garden at DeKorte after nursing them as caterpillars. The NJSEA planted more milkweed plants this year thanks to a grant from our friends at the Bergen County Audubon Society. Some of the caterpillars were in danger from predators, prompting our Natural Resources Department to take them in. More butterflies will be released later today.
