Lady Bug Release

Join us for a beautiful afternoon as we celebrate our Annual Ladybug Release on the land of the Sisters of St. Dominic in Amityville!

Learn all about Our Lady’s Beetle, with lots of fun facts, and activities.  Then, help us as we release them on the land where they can dine on aphids and other pests. It’s a party for the young, young at heart, and our favorite beetle, too!
