2nd Generation Butterfly in our Habitat - Miguel!
In the Spring of last year our GES 1st grade students planted Milkweed plants in the Schoolyard Habitat. Those plants grew tall and strong. During late summer a monarch butterfly laid an egg on the underside of one of those milkweed leaves. The egg hatched into a tiny larvae and was found by students in Mrs. Morgan’s 5th grade class while doing a lesson in the habitat. We collected the larvae and Mrs. Gansberg’s Kindergarten class named him Miguel and cared for him until he hatched into a Monarch butterfly. We then tagged and released him into the Schoolyard Habitat. We hope that he will get strong and have a safe migration from over the mountains to the Monterey Bay area. Fly well Miguel.
