Slideshow: Fun flutters through Monarch Festival at Eagle Marsh

Children fluttered through Eagle Marsh on Sunday as they learned about a certain butterfly at the Monarch Festival. Little River Wetland Project celebrated the monarch by giving away milkweed, the only source of food for its caterpillars; tagging and releasing butterflies that will head to Mexico for the winter; and lots of crafts for children. Heavy rain and thunderstorms canceled Little River’s Earth Day celebration in April so some of its activities, including the silent auction of rain barrels, was included in Sunday’s event at the marsh, 6801 Engle Road.
