Thousands of Beneficial Bugs Released at Disney’s California Adventure in Celebration of 40th Earth Day

ANAHEIM, Calif.  – April 22, 2010 – Today, in celebration of Earth Day, guests and local school children helped the Disneyland Resort’s horticulture team release 140,000 ladybugs in benefit of the environment. Nearly 100 third-grade students from Dr. Peter Marshall Elementary School in Anaheim had the opportunity to take science outside the classroom and into a living laboratory. The students learned about environmentally friendly gardening practices and the advantages of using beneficial bugs. The Resort’s pest management program began a decade ago and reduces the use of pesticides.
