Eglin ES Butterfly Garden

Last year, two of our teachers, Heather Pinckard and Rachel Fuller, cleaned out the small triangle area beside our music room to “plant” a butterfly garden.  Our business sponsor, Corvias, provided monetary support to purchase the plants and necessities needed for this garden.

“At some point last year, we began to see caterpillars on the plants before they disappeared,” said Dennis Samac, Eglin ES Principal.  “The last two days have seen numerous cocoons attached to the wall and ceilings near the garden, including one about 15 yards away.  Today, teachers and students were able to watch butterflies hatch, dry their wings and eventually, I’m told, take flight to Mexico.  Needless to say, it is an exciting time at our school as classes walk by, observe and discuss the process.”

As we observed the cocoons, we saw one cocoon with a very intricate designed gold ring near the top (Butterfly pic #2).

“Thanks to Corvias representatives Brandon Masters and Kim Cariker for their support and to Mrs. Pinckard and Ms. Fuller for the labor and interest needed to start this garden.  It’s a VERY COOL day for our teachers and kids,” said Samac.
