"Miracle of Flight" Live Butterfly Exhibit


"Miracle of Flight" Live Butterfly Exhibit
April 18 - July 5

How do the wings of a butterfly work?  If they lose their dust-like scales, can butterflies still fly?  Why do some glide and others dart and dash?  Are all insect wings alike?  Is it true that a bumblebee defies the laws of physics by flying with wings too small for it's body?  The Botanical Conservatory will help answer these questions as you take a look at the life science mechanics of the flight for butterflies, bees, flies and dragonflies while you visit the Showcase garden.  Then, inside the live butterfly enclosure, you can simply marvel at the swoops and darts of our exotic butterly menagerie.  Perfect for a school field trip, a family visit, or for the curious and delightable.  Sponsored by 97.3 WMEE and ABC21 WPTA.
