Naturalist from Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory "Visits" Grade 1s

Melissa Mazurkewich
The Grade 1s had a wonderful visit with some interesting insects during a live virtual field trip to the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory this week. The children went on a tour of the greenhouse and had an up close experience with fluttering butterflies and four different insect friends. Some of the insects they met were Jenny the Malaysian Jungle Nymph, Mr. and Ms. Madagascar Cockroach, Millie the Indonesian Millipede and camouflaging Owl Caterpillars.
The students loved being able to pose questions to Conservatory Manager & Naturalist, Andalyne Tofflemire, while seeing interesting insects from across the world up close!
