Residents at Terraceview Living Center watch Monarch butterfly film

Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2011

Happy Tonics, Inc. hosted the film, “The Incredible Journey of the Butterflies,” by NOVA. Residents at Terraceview Living Center in Shell Lake enjoyed being connected to beauty and butterflies in the film. Some remembered earlier years when they would see Monarch butterflies near their lakefront homes in Shell Lake.

As we age, we need to stay connected to nature. Nature has a way of reconnecting brain cells. Happy Tonics loves to get nursing home and assisted living residents involved in environmental stimulating conversations after seeing an environmental film about butterflies. Elders remember to tell us about their own butterfly experiences.

We are hoping to host a few planned trips for elders to the Monarch Butterfly Habitat this summer. We’ll keep you posted.
