Where do we even start! Thank you to everyone who came out to and volunteered at Butterfly Day yesterday!!! We had an absolutely beautiful day and the butterflies cooperated in full force.

We estimate that more than 1,000 people attended! It was especially great to see so many kids in attendance and fully engaged. They especially loved the nature-themed scavenger hunt.

There’s an article in today’s Record on Butterfly Day. Click here to check it out.

We have tons of photos from the day to post, and what better way to start than with the butterflies themselves! Stay tuned throughout the day for more. If you have any photos to share send to brian.aberback@njmeadowlands.gov
