The Butterfly Conservancy: Testimonials

Educational Programs and Rearing Kits:

My students really loved the Lepidoptera class, especially all the show & tell, and getting to handle live specimens. We bought plants and caterpillars, and observing all the stages of metamorphosis kept the kids enthralled for four weeks!
Jody F., 1st grade teacher, Aptos, CA

We will absolutely have Ms. Moreau back next year. The kids learned so much, and so did I! Tagging a Monarch and participating in migration research and Journey North with children from Mexico and Canada helped reinforce our studies of geography and environmental interrelationships.
Charlotte J., 3rd grade teacher, Carmel, CA

The best part was seeing a new butterfly emerge from a chrysalis and later that afternoon, setting it free in our schoolís butterfly garden. The children really enjoyed the Indian legend.
Terri H., Mom, 1st/4th graders, Catholic elementary school, Hollister, CA

Our elders loved seeing the butterflies and moths, and getting to hold a butterfly (on a nectar stick) and watch it eat. Ms. Moreau was especially good at meeting the needs of our diverse group. We canít wait to visit the Vivarium!
Marie S., retirement home activities coordinator, Monterey, CA

I want to thank you for all your help with our butterflies from the rearing kits we purchased. We can't believe that they hatched on the given date of our graduation ceremony!! What a wonderful experience for our students. We look forward to doing this activity in the Fall. Thanks so much!
Maureen F., teacher, Chapman Hill, OR

We just wanted to let you know how extremely pleased we are with the Monarch chysalises we've received from you. The last batch had a 100% emergence! They're so well-packed, the butterfly handlers just love to receive and hang them, because they know they'll be in super condition. Thanks again for your terrific service!

It is an honor to be associated with Ms. Moreau and the Conservancy. Never has Lepidoptera had a better champion than Sheri. The philosophy and caring exhibited by the Conservancy should be emulated by all of us. I strongly urge anyone who loves butterflies to attend one of Ms. Moreau's seminars. Her knowledge of the topic is most remarkable and truly impressive. If you care about the future of butterflies, her classes are a must!
