Butterflies are FREE!

In observance of City of Houston’s Citizenship Month, we had butterflies here at Baldwin Boettcher Branch. 

Our painted lady butterflies have emerged a few days ago and we have released them today into the beautiful Mercer Gardens. 

Their wings opened up beautifully in the sun and they left to explore the world freely.
