Butterfly Habitat

Last week, Maddy from Barwon Coast came to talk to us about butterflies, caterpillars and how important they are for our environment.

We learnt……

That you can tell what kind of butterfly a caterpillar is going to turn into by its colours.

That caterpillars come out of a chrysalis.

If you touch their wings their scales come off and they can’t fly.

Some butterflies only live for 2 weeks, some for 6 months.

They need to have something to hang off to make their chrysalis.

They are attracted to bright colors.

Butterflies are cold blooded.

Today we met Maddy at our butterfly habitat and planned where to plant some indigenous plants that the butterflies like. The plants are kangaroo grass, wallaby grass, tall blue bells, pale swamp everlasting daisy, wattle mat rush and drumsticks.
