Adopt-and-Release a Butterfly

Take part in a very special event! For $25, you can adopt a Monarch butterfly which you (or someone you designate) will personally release on September 21. Your butterfly will be tagged with a unique research number, and you’ll receive an adoption certificate listing that number, as well as two free admission passes to the release. A wonderful way to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, or graduation or to remember a loved one. Call (336) 714-7109 or stop by SciWorks. We sold out last year, so adopt early!
