Join us in the children’s area of the South Berwick Public Library to celebrate Earth Day 2020!

Experience the life cycle of Monarch butterflies as you move through the stages and transformations of a butterfly’s life in an installation created by local high school students this past winter under the supervision of children’s librarian Jane Cowen Fletcher. Monarch butterfly migration

 

Learn about this species and what you can do to promote and sustain Monarch populations in Maine.  Make “Seed Bombs” loaded with native milkweed seeds and learn how to choose the best sites to plant them. The migration installation will be on display in the library through May.
