Seniors at The Gardens plant Butterfly Garden
- Updated: September 27, 2013
The Gardens, an independent senior living community ages 62+ in Walworth, held a large event on August 16th and partnered with the Seneca Park Zoo.
The Seneca Park Zoo’s Butterfly Beltway Project provides a unique opportunity for seniors to make a lasting connection to the zoo through the planting of a garden filled with plants specific to the native species of butterflies, with an interactive educational discussion of the Monarch migration and a Monarch butterfly release
The Gardens is the only community in Wayne County in 2013 to plant this garden and be part of the Monarch butterfly conservation effort. Pictured above are Renate Schuett (hammering) with Tim (from Seneca Park Zoo), in background (left to right) are: Shirley Miller, Joan Hadle, and Sandra True.
