The Bridgetown Summer Active Living Day Camp campers have been busy all summer long. On Tuesday August 3, the campers got their hands dirty by making and planting a butterfly garden on Jubilee’s waterfront. The kids had help from staff of the Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve and the Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute. The project was part of a two day learning program to teach the kids about nature and the environment that they live in.

The first day consisted of different crafts and games all centered around protecting the environment and animals that live around us. The second day was when the garden was planted. The campers first learned the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly; this species is at risk in Nova Scotia. To help create places that the butterflies would be able to live and grow in the campers planted a number of different plants in the new garden at Jubilee Park. There are three signs in the garden that inform visitors to the park about the project and where they can learn more about planting a butterfly garden of their own.
