BRYAN - The Twin Cities recognized Saturday as a special day for the Museum of Natural History, on the day they held their annual Wish Upon a Butterfly fundraiser.
For $20, patrons could purchase a butterfly and release it on the front lawn of the museum.
"This is a really exciting moment for us because out of our 53 years of existence in this community, we have never had a day named after the museum," said Director of the Museum Dr. Deborah Cowman.
In addition to bringing some much-needed funds into the museum, the butterfly release introduces those butterflies into the local ecosystem, helping the environment.
