The Butterfly Conservatory is closing for the season on May 29, 2017! This annual favorite features up to 500 live, free-flying tropical butterflies from South, Central, and North America, Africa, and Asia. Housed in a vivarium that approximates their natural habitat with live flowering plants, species include iridescent blue morpho butterflies, striking scarlet swallowtails, and large owl butterflies.
