TRANSITION AND CHANGE
THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT
The scientific theory that a single occurrence, no matter how small, can change the course of the universe forever.
Our ( Alberni Valley Hospice Society) annual butterfly release event celebrates the transformation from one stage of life to another, paying symbolic tribute to the loved ones we have lost.
Each person who buys a butterfly to release will receive an individually packed butterfly, ready to break free and take flight at our mass release location on event day.
We have made the decision to release Painted Lady butterflies, which are indigenous to our region.
