Wings of Fancy: Live Butterfly and Caterpillar Exhibit

What’s better than the great outdoors? Truth is, nothing! And although time is running out, you still have a chance to get out and experience the Wings of Fancy: Live Butterfly & Caterpillar Exhibit!

That’s right, until Sunday, October 25, 2015 you can get out and see one of the world’s most impressive displays of some of Earth’s natural wonders. The seasonal display features hundreds of live butterflies from all over the world. Get up close and personal with butterflies from North America, Costa Rica, Africa and Asia as they soar among colorful flowers.

Learn about metamorphosis, the important role butterflies play in having healthy ecosystems, and how to ensure these beautiful insects thrive in our own gardens.

While the Wings of Fancy Live Butterfly Exhibit only runs until October 25 at Brookside Gardens, The Conservatories runs throughout the year and hosts the holiday train display and four changing shows throughout the year. The Conservatories consist of two glass buildings joined by a short hallway and house a large collection of tropical plants including banana, giant bird of paradise, and mimosa as well as seasonal displays.

Ok, ok, so you’re technically indoors. But feel like you’re in foreign outdoor paradise by experiencing butterflies and plants from around the world!
