The arboretum’s annual butterfly and ladybug release will be taking place this weekend. Simek said this is the third year the arboretum has hosted the event, and it’s on its way to becoming an annual event for the gardens. Simek also explained how butterflies and ladybugs can actually help a garden by eating harmful insects that would otherwise damage plants. The event will be Saturday, June 29th from 5 PM to 7 PM, and admission to the event is free.
