FPD students plant butterfly gardens in honor of Earth Day

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – In honor of Earth Day, sixth graders from First Presbyterian Day School in Macon planted butterfly gardens with the help of local business owners.

Chris Moore, of ArgoMoore Landscapes, helped the students install three separate butterfly gardens on the campus grounds.

The school says these new gardens will not only educate their middle school students, but the younger children as well.

“Our second grade students are currently involved with a project involving butterflies,” said Nancy Massey, a Life Sciences teacher at FPD. “They have cocoons that are in their classrooms and they’ve decided they’d like them to release their butterflies here.”

The project will be completed by the FPD Middle School Environmental Club, as they will write a booklet detailing the plants selected for the garden and how they support the life cycles of butterflies.
