Born to be freed, stu­dents re­lease but­ter­flies at se­nior lodges

The Drumheller Mail - - FRONT PAGE -

Grade 3s from Green­tree School trav­elled to the Sun­shine and Hil­lview Lodges Mon­day morn­ing to re­lease dozens of painted lady but­ter­flies they had raised this year. Above, Jack Lau, Kay­ley Lef­fer­son, and Reese Hatch coax on an in­jured but­ter­fly to spread its wings, and lodge res­i­dent Peter Friesen ad­mires a painted lady, whose colour­ing im­i­tates that of the monarch but­ter­fly, which ap­par­ently tastes bad to preda­tors.
