NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Over the last 20 years the Stephen F. Austin State University's outdoor education program, Bugs, Bees,Butterflies, and Blossoms has taught thousands of children worthy environmental lessons.
The week long event wrapped up its 20th year this afternoon.
Its founder is SFA professor, Dr. Alan Sowards.
He said he's had as much fun this year showing butterflies off to youngsters as he did two decades ago.
Sowards said he plans to retire next month, but he will continue to organize and teach the spring program for many, more years to come.
He loves watching the program evolve and even notices some familiar faces..
