Press release from the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory:

Butterflies & Fairies Exhibit Opens at Botanical Conservatory Saturday

The Botanical Conservatory will add a new attraction to their annual live butterfly display this year: fairies! This spring showcase opens Saturday, April 10 and runs through Sunday, June 27.

The butterflies are confined to the chrysalis hatching lab and the display tent, but fairies travel beyond the limits of the imagination! Inside the tent, watch a variety of butterflies feeding among the impatiens, floating lazily on the air, and basking in the sun. School groups are welcome to request butterfly curriculum in advance of a visit. Outside the tent, visitors can search for hidden fairy homes and gathering spots, learn fairy lore, and even dress in wings for photos. Enjoy the fanciful spring setting, linger in the relaxing butterfly display, and search for evidence of the Fair Folk. Sponsored by 97.3 WMEE, PBS 39 and Media 401.

The Botanical Conservatory is located downtown at 1100 S. Calhoun Street.
