July: Luna Moths

July was indeed a month for Luna Moths, with lots of folks in Charlotte and environs raising caterpillars at home. Kids gave them names like Melody, Moonpie, Creeper, Zombie and Steve. Fun.

The caterpillars came to us courtesy of Mia and Ana, two of the lady Lunas who grew up in Shamrock classrooms during the fall and hibernated in their cocoons through the winter.

You can learn more about Lunas in the Butterfly section of the webpage.
