We’ve done it again!
We made our first stretch goal and have collected over $9,000 for our project! We are again humbled at the amount of support we have received and are looking forward to putting this money to good work, giving kids opportunities for hands-on science during the summer and school year.
But we’re not done yet! One of the major remaining costs to creating the butterfly house is collecting all those native Nevada Butterflies. These butterflies will serve as the stock from which we will raise caterpillars to be put into the house. Our next stretch goal is to raise an additional $1,000 that will be dedicated to traveling around the state and collecting a diverse array of insects to show at the butterfly house, as well as for student science projects. We are excited to share the beauty and insect life of the Great Basin with others, especially our supporters, so please let us know if you would like to come along on one of our collecting trips. What could be more fun than camping in the the desert and collecting bugs!
