Guests were treated to tours of the half-acre butterfly garden, now in full bloom and full of butterflies; the animal compounds and nature trail; plus enjoyed free hot dogs, snacks and beverages.

“We truly appreciate the support from the community,” Arnold said. “It helps make our wildlife conservation efforts possible.”

PRESS RELEASE

 ARNOLD’S BUTTERFLY HAVEN FEATURED IN BIRDS & BLOOMS MAGAZINE AND LAUNCHES NEW ARNOLD’S BUTTERFLY HAVEN WEBSITE

OKEECHOBEE, Florida,, January 15, 2007 – Arnold’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center Inc.’s Butterfly Haven is featured in the February/March issue of Birds & Blooms magazine, a national publication. The article,

Bigger Than Life, highlights the ever-changing wonders of the half-acre ecocosm created in the shape of the Zebra Longwing, Florida’s state butterfly, to provide a much needed breeding and feeding ground for the area’s indigenous butterfly species. It also includes butterfly gardening tips and resources.

Arnold’s Butterfly Haven opened to the public July 2006. “It is an extension of the wildlife education and conservation efforts of the center,” says owner Sue Arnold. “We hope people who come to visit our butterfly garden walk away with an enhanced appreciation of these delicate creatures, and put some new butterfly gardening knowledge to work in their own backyards.”

“Sue suggested I write the article,” says author Karey McCann, a veteran journalist who volunteers public relations efforts for the center and helps tend the butterfly garden. “I experience the magic-in-motion of that garden on a regular basis, and agreed it was a good way to share it with others who might be interested.”

Arnold’s Butterfly Haven now has its own Website thanks to the efforts of supporter Roger Newson, a telecommunications professional living in Fort Pierce, who recently created the site to additionally share the magic with others. The site features fantastic butterfly and plant photos taken in the garden as well as information about the volunteers and donors who helped to make the garden a reality.

Arnold’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and return animals to their natural habitat. The center has been around for 11 years and rehabilitates an average 1000 animals per year. It is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational facility that relies completely on donations to fund its work. The center regularly hosts children’s birthday parties and educational tours for schools and other interested groups.  

Reiman Media Group, based in Greendale, Wis., publishes Birds & Blooms and 11 other “wholesome, country-living” magazines including Backyard Living, Country Women, Farm & Ranch, as well as a handful of home and cooking magazines. Combined circulation of the publications exceeds 13 million nationwide.
