The City of Greer Recreation Division released several monarch butterflies back into the wild this morning. It’s all part of an environmental conservation effort where our staff collects and raises monarch caterpillars for release. The matured butterflies are tagged and tracked to their destination in Mexico.
The monarch butterfly is on the endangered species list, and Greer is proud to have been named a Monarch City USA for its efforts in repopulation.
The City of Greer Center for the Arts is currently displaying the work of several Hispanic and Latino artists in recognition of Hispanic Heritage month. Join us for a reception on October 6 or drop by during normal hours!
