Butterfly Day a Rousing Success!!!

Some 1,200 people came out to DeKorte Park for yesterday’s 9th Annual Butterfly Day, easily our biggest and best yet! A huge thank you to everyone who made the day, and the fun, possible: Bergen County Audubon Society, who had tables on both butterflies and bees, led butterfly walks, and gave butterfly talks; NJSEA staff volunteers; Teaneck Creek Conservancy; and the Hudson Woodpile Band.

It was especially great seeing all the kids learn about butterflies and show off their butterfly tattoos!

We will have lots of photos throughout the day. We’ll start with some iconic monarchs photographed by Tatiana Gomez.
