Enjoy special activities to learn about and celebrate the life cycle of our small, winged friends: Visit “Butterfly World” to imagine you are a butterfly, paint en Plein Air with live butterfly inspiration, make Butterfly Puddlers and Butterfly Feeders to help support the life cycle of the butterfly. Arrive early to enjoy all of the day’s activities and to avoid admission lines.

Also, this will be the last weekend of Caterpillar Adoption Days at Kidspace. Witness the magic of metamorphosis by adopting a Painted Lady Caterpillar during Kidspace’s butterfly season. Your caterpillar, its food, and care guide will be $4.50 in the Busy Bee Learning Store, or $18.99 for a cup of 5 caterpillars.
