Crowd Funding for Butterfly House Docent

Using the MSU Foundation's crowdfunding site, we are attempting to raise $5000 for a summer intern at the Dr. Bill Roston Native Butterfly House.  This will enable us to be open longer hours so more people can learn about native butterflies and moths and the habitat they require.
