ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - University of Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital has opened a butterfly garden with the release of more than 100 monarchs.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1QdtasE ) that the grand opening celebration was held Friday with patients and their families. The released butterflies were raised by students from South Canton Scholars Charter Academy and Spiritus Sanctus Academy.

Organizers say the garden aims to create an oasis for patients and their families.

Another monarch release is planned for the fall, and butterflies will tagged for migration tracking.
