Talk about a hands-on learning experience. Over the past few weeks, the children at Sanford's Child Development center watched caterpillars transform into beautiful butterflies. This morning at Sanford's Healing Garden on north Broadway, they let those butterflies go.

The children, who dressed the part of a butterfly, hope their new friends that fly will take up permanent residence in the newly planted garden.
