Parents and children of Eagle Watch gathered on May 25 for a giant pool party, celebrating the final day of the 2022-23 school year. The party featured a DJ and a variety of entertainment, including a contest for best “belly flop” and the even more competitive hula-hoop competition.
Members of the Eagle Watch Wildlife Habitat Project welcomed party guests to the pool pavilion for free wildflower seed packets, information on certifying a wildlife habitat yard and — the most popular — a selection of butterfly tattoos. The Eagle Watch Wildlife Habitat Project is an ongoing effort to help residents restore yards through the National Wildlife Federation as healthy places for wildlife, songbirds and pollinators like bees and butterflies.
Meanwhile, in Eagle Watch’s habitat yards, butterflies and bees gathered to enjoy the “party buffet” offered by the flowers of native plants like orange butterfly weed and purple liatris. It was a festive celebration for people and pollinators alike!
