The “Flutterby Meadow” was named by second grader, Novalee Bowen for the new milkweed planting site behind Kane Elementary School.

Kane Elementary School second graders had a fun day Tuesday planting milkweed and pollinator flowers at the back of the school playground.

Each year, the Kane second graders have a hands-on experience watching the caterpillars transition through their life cycle eventually releasing the butterflies.
