Lady bugs will swarm the Wayne Garrett Children’s Garden, Lincoln and Sycamore streets, at the tailend of a three-day SAFE BASE summer session.

Angela Henry, SAFE BASE director, told USD 257 board members Monday evening the after-school program had sufficient money for three days of science-based summer activities centering on the garden. The session will be June 18-20.

The finale will have students release as many as 17,000 lady bugs at dusk, with the intention of them feasting on aphids that annually infest gardens hereabouts.
