The Nature Nook at the Children’s room of the library has been such a big hit this month. A live display of the life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly was set up by the Long Hill Garden Club in conjunction with the Trumbull Library Children’s room and the Trumbull Nature and Arts Center. Children keep returning to watch the caterpillars eat and grow, spin their cocoons and evolve as adult butterflies. They are then released.
The caterpillars were donated by Nancy DuBrule, owner of Natureworks in Northford, Conn. Members of the garden club who took care of the display and provided fresh milkweed for the caterpillars are Kathy Downs, Cathy Ritch, Walter Callagy, Lynn Stewart, Ann Germano, Meg Barnes, Mary Song and Arlene Fields.
