Butterflies at the Botanical Conservatory

From now through July 6th, visitors to the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory can experience the magical beauty of butterflies up close in the butterfly tent exhibit. Perfect for all ages, this popular butterfly exhibit is in its 11th year and showcases some of the most gorgeous species from Asia, South America, and everywhere in between. Free with regular conservatory admission, this is definitely a can't miss for your family. As you enter the tent, you are immediately surrounded by the brightly colored creatures high and low. If you're lucky, they will pause just long enough to take a quick photo, and some even are so friendly they might land on you--something my toddler found complete delight in! This exhibit is special because it allows visitors to experience a creature in nature that is not always easy to get close to. The butterflies at the Botanical Conservatory are something we look forward to each year, and my family is able to see new species and have new special experiences each time we visit. If you love nature, a visit to the conservatory is an ideal plan this spring--and if you love butterflies, you're truly in for a treat. Experience the beauty and grace of these amazing butterflies, but check your clothing carefully upon leaving so you don't accidentally bring home any "hitchhiking" butterfly friends!
