News: Monarch Butterflies

September 25, 2019

Last spring, Mater Christi initiated a butterfly garden, a collaborative project supported by students, faculty, alumni, and Girls on the Run. This garden was registered as part of the Mercy Monarch Milkweed Garden network.

Today, our kindergarteners were excited to release the Monarch butterflies they have been nurturing through their life cycle so the butterflies could begin their journey to Mexico. It was a beautiful day to start such a journey!
