Wings of Fancy Live Butterfly & Caterpillar Exhibit


Apr 26, 2017 to Sep 17, 2017
10:00 AM until 04:00 PM


As you enter the South Conservatory, you are surrounded by hundreds of brilliant live butterflies from North America, Costa Rica, Africa and Asia soaring among colorful flowers and going about their business of drinking nectar and looking for others of their kind.

You will learn about butterflies' amazing metamorphosis, the important role they play in healthy ecosystems, and how to ensure these beautiful insects thrive in your own garden.

Brookside Gardens offers additional opportunities to explore the beautiful butterflies through birthday parties, photography and art classes, school groups visits, and after-hours fun.
