      4th grade students from Deerfield-Windsor got the chance to see one of the seven wonders of Georgia on Wednesday, as students and teachers toured the butterfly garden at Radium Springs with the Southwest Georgia Master Gardeners.

      Officials say showing the kids the gardens links them to natural history and a very special place in Georgia.

      Suzanna MacIntosh, 2013 President of the Southwest Master Gardeners says, "this is a wonderful opportunity for young people to understand the importance of native plants, butterfly migration. And it's a good time to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of one of the most beautiful places in Georgia."

      Teacher Amy Dent says, "we're studying the adaptation of animals and the Radium Springs Gardens provides the opportunity for them to see the migration and camouflage of the Monarch Butterflies." 51 students attended the field trip.
