The milkweed plants that were introduced in the Woodside garden are the sole host plant for Monarch butterfly caterpillars. Woodside teacher Ms. Melina Cronin recently gathered a few caterpillars from the milkweeds and hosted them in her classroom where her students were able to observe as each caterpillar became a chrysalis over an eight day period. Beautiful monarch butterflies eventually emerged from the chrysalist! The butterflies were released to the students' delight and will return to the garden in the spring in a return migration. This experience presents the life cycle in a way that our kindergarten and first grade students truly understand.
On Monday, February 11, the PNW BOCES Center for Environmental Education Programs came to visit Woodside students and they brought along some very special guests. Student were treated to a "Birds & Raptors" presentation and had the opportunity to see real birds of prey up close. The children were engaged by the lesson and excited to meet these beautiful creatures.
