Riley Minne poses with a buckeye butterfly that landed on her at the Butterflies Alive! exhibit at the Museum of Natural History. The exhibit features more than 1,000 free-flying butterflies of 30 different species. Minne and her family went to the exhibit two days in a row and plan to return for Riley’s butterfly-themed birthday party.

“The first day we got the bees, I must have spent hours watching them and learning their habits,” said Diane Brown, while standing outside her backyard beehives. Brown eliminated pesticides four years ago and transformed her garden into a safe haven for bees, butterflies, birds, and other pollinators after learning about the importance of bees in the ecosystem. “People say the phrase ‘busy as a bee,’ and it’s really true — they are so busy doing what they do, they never bother us. And we get honey out of it!” she added.
