Norfolk Botanical Gardens

We all had so much fun last Saturday at the annual Monarch Butterfly Tag and Release Day!! After listening to an outdoor presentation from the experts, the kids got to tag the butteries with a sticker and then release them, with the hopes of tracking them on their journey south, around 2500 miles! The Monarch butterflies at this time of year migrate to Mexico, traveling 100 miles per day. Each butterfly and tag came with a certificate to track their special friend. It was such a fun and unique way for kids to learn about butterflies and in such a beautiful setting. We decided to become members of the gardens as I know we will be coming back again and again over the coming years! There is also a wonderful kids area with gardens, education areas and water play park. So much fun on these humid and hot days in Norfolk!
