An annual favorite, The Butterfly Conservatory: Tropical Butterflies Alive in Winter, is eagerly anticipated by children and adults alike, and the spectacle of hundreds of live tropical butterflies is the perfect antidote to the autumn chill. 

The Butterfly Conservatory houses up to 500 iridescent butterflies that hover above visitors in a 1,200-square-foot vivarium filled with lush foliage and blooming tropical flowers, where delighted children wander amid these magical winged creatures. The Butterfly Conservatory, now in its nineteenth year, opens to the public on Saturday, December 10, and runs through Monday, May 29, 2017.

Generous support for The Butterfly Conservatory has been provided by the Eileen P. Bernard Exhibition Fund.
