Monarch Butterflies @ Ardenwood Farm

Today we went on a fieldtrip to Ardenwod Historic Farm in Fremont for their Monarch Butterfly program. After a wonderful presentation on the Monarch migration and a review of insect body parts, we headed outside to the greenhouse to view chrysalises and then the eucalyptus grove. We found three butterflies on the ground as well as a cluster in one of the trees. There were even a few flying around in the sunshine! Tons of puddles...lots of mud...a great opportunity to put on our rain boots and have some fun!
