Cameron county recreation center summer picnic
On August 13, CCOYA hosted an end of year picnic for the Cameron County Recreation Center Summer Program. While there, the students learned about the life cycle of monarch butterflies and the incredible journey they make every year to their roosting sites in Mexico. They also learned the importance of monarchs as pollinators. The students were able to do a craft using a small bottle and felt to simulate a flower. The bottle was filled with nectar and can be left outside to attract monarchs and other pollinators. Everyone enjoyed a Fox’s Pizza Den lunch donated by CCOYA before leaving.
