Trinity Academy Students Plant Butterfly-Friendly Flowers in Caldwell

CALDWELL, NJ — Following an informative presentation on Monarch Butterflies from Master Gardener Jane Kinkle last month, Trinity Academy’s third graders planted several butterfly-friendly flowers on location in Caldwell.

According to Trinity, Kinkle presented a slideshow about the stages of the butterfly's life and how the monarch butterflies migrate to the different areas of the United States. She also discussed the feeding habits of the monarch butterfly and the importance of providing feeding areas (or “waystations”) for the butterflies in the Caldwell-West Caldwell area.

The third-grade students learned about the types of flowers that butterflies prefer: flowers with flat tops including milkweed, lavender and coreopsis.

Trinity Art Teacher Mrs. Crump prepared a small garden plot near the Pre-K playground for the location of the monarch butterfly waystation, where the students planted their flowers.

The students at Trinity encourage the community to look out for Monarch butterflies there this summer.
