Students released more than 1,500 ladybugs throughout the schoolyard.

Special to The Sun: Students at Moorestown’s Chesterbrook Academy Preschool celebrate Earth Day by releasing 1,500 beneficial bugs into the schoolyard to help local vegetation.

Students at Chesterbrook Academy Preschool in Moorestown explored a bug’s life in celebration of Earth Day as they released more than 1,500 ladybugs throughout the schoolyard and back into the environment on plants, flowers and trees. Students were dressed for the occasion in the likeness of ladybugs, wearing red and black clothing and antennas.

Leading up to Earth Day, students learned that ladybugs serve as a natural pesticide by feeding on insects that could otherwise harm the health of gardens, trees and shrubs. Chesterbrook Academy teaches the importance of community and exploring nature at an early age.
