Residents at Morning Pointe of Chattanooga at Shallowford witnessed the two-week-long miracle of metamorphosis, as the community watched caterpillar eggs turn into beautiful butterflies.

As part of the Life Enrichment Program, the assisted living residents enjoy connecting with nature through gardening, educational outdoor activities and interaction with the uniquely beautiful wildlife.

After the butterflies spent a few days in the habitat, the residents ventured outside to set them free.
