Abstract: 

Discover the miracle of the butterfly life cycle. Mary Kulberg of Detroit Lakes has raised butterflies for several years and created successful butterfly gardens in her yard. Through photographs and specimens (as available) she will share her experiences. Students will learn the stages of the butterfly and how our yards can be a habitat for butterflies if we provide food and space for all the stages. For grades 1, 2 and 3.

Contact Mary Kulberg at 218-847-3957 or mmkulberg@juno.com for a classroom presentation as her time allows. Fall is the best time for specimens.
