Description

A gift for my son's teacher.  His class did a big unit on the Karner Blue Butterfly which is an endangered species that lives in the Pine Bush around Albany NY.  His class grew blue lupine plants to plant at the preserve, the lupine being the sole food of the Karner Blue Butterfly.  I may also make one for one of his classmate's mom who works at the Pinebush Discovery Center and helped 60 2nd graders plant blue lupine without any injury or meltdowns.

Your son's teacher will be delighted, especially that this gift is themed to such a special butterfly and the lupine plants . Thank you for posting the story behind it. The Mom who helps at the center would be honored with one of these too.
