Our Shippee Family Eye Care Butterfly House is alive with movement and color! There are lots of Monarch and Painted Lady butterflies, both of which are busy laying eggs on their host plants.

Amble through the exhibit to take in the variety of plants and various stages of butterfly development. Look closely to spot Painted Lady caterpillars by the dozens munching away on the hollyhocks and marshmallows.  Flowers in bloom include yarrow, bee balm, alyssum, spike speedwell and cosmos.  A not-to-be missed experience!
