President Carter Celebrates 90th Birthday

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter celebrated his 90th birthday at The Carter Center on Oct. 1 with cake and a tour of a new butterfly garden created in honor of his special day.

The Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Pollinator Garden at The Carter Center is filled with flowers and plants native to Georgia and is part of the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail, developed by the former first lady to draw attention to the plight of endangered monarch butterflies. Volunteers from Trees Atlanta and the De Roode Lab at Emory University, which provided the seedlings for the garden, will help monitor and maintain its plants.

Ambassador (Ret.) Mary Ann Peters, Carter Center CEO, presided over the presidential birthday celebration, which was attended by staff, interns, volunteers, and board members of The Carter Center and the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum. Attendees sang "Happy Birthday" to President Carter and presented him with a cake, while thousands of others around the world helped celebrate by posting well-wishes on the Center's website.
