VERY SPECIAL LADIES AT MMMG

South Boston NewsSouth Boston News
Top, MacCallum More Museum and Gardens executive director Cat Graham releases a Painted Lady butterfly into the gardens as part of the Arbor Day celebration Friday at the Chase City landmark. Graham said these butterflies are easier to sustain than their large look-alikes, the Monarch Butterfly. Monarchs live on the nectar from flowers while the Painted Ladies prefer sugar water, Graham said. With the new MMMG Butterfly Garden, there are not enough flowers currently available to sustain a colony of Monarchs. Above, Jeremy Satterfield, with the Microsoft’s Tech Spark initiative in Southside Virginia presents Chase City Mayor Alden Fahringer and MMMG board member Sarah Hall with a $5,000 check from Microsoft to help cover the cost of maintaining trees in the garden.
