PROGRAM OVERVIEWS

Each of our Education Programs are 90 minutes in length.

Students will have the chance to experience three interactive components:

THE BUTTERFLY CONSERVATORY

Students will journey through the Conservatory in small groups, surrounded by free-flying tropical butterflies, birds, fish, and turtles. Students will also see the Emergence Window, where live butterflies emerge from their chrysalides, dry their wings, and take their first flight into the Conservatory.

THE LEARNING DISCOVERY ROOM

Students will participate in hands-on activities that are curriculum-specific for each grade level, led by one of our experienced Nature Interpreters. The learning activities focus on small-group inquiry and exploration, allowing students to engage in curriculum topics and build meaningful connections between themselves, butterflies, and the natural world.

THE INSECT GALLERIES

Students will have the chance to meet some of our live tropical bugs – up close and personal! They will learn about parts of insects by observing and, if they’re brave enough, touching different insects and arachnids.
