Butterflies will be released at Center in the Square today

ROANOKE -

The Science Museum of Western Virginia will reap some benefits from the government shutdown.

The museum will get a shipment of 143 live butterflies today from a botanical garden in Richmond.

The garden normally sends the butterflies to the Smithsonian before closing for the winter, but the shutdown closed the Smithsonian.

If you are at the garden inside Center in the Square today at 11 a.m., you can help release the butterflies.
