Majestic Monarchs at the Butterfly Conservatory
On September 12, witness this one-day educational exhibit for visitors to learn more about the lifecycle of the Monarch Butterfly and its incredible migratory journey.
Exhibit topics and displays will cover the fascinating life history, migration and habitat of the Monarch Butterfly. As part of this program, participants will be able to view all stages of a butterfly’s life, as they transform from caterpillars into chrysalis and later Monarchs, which will fly freely within the Conservatory. The program also includes hourly Monarch tagging demonstrations (starting at 11 a.m.), followed by their release into the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens to begin their great migration south to Mexico.
The educational exhibit is available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the Conservatory remaining open until 6 p.m. (last tickets sold at 5:30 p.m.) The fully accessible Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory is located at 2565 Niagara Parkway, on the beautiful grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens and School of Horticulture.
The exhibit is included with admission to the Butterfly Conservatory:
$13.95 for adults (ages 13+)
$9.10 for children (6 to 12 years),
Children five and under are admitted FREE
