Name: 2018 Butterfly House & Pollinator Path Season!
Date: June 1, 2018 - September 2, 2018
Event Description:
The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster announces the 2018 Butterfly House & Pollinator Path season open daily Friday, June 1st through Sunday, September 2, 2018 9:30am – 4pm. Butterflies are among the most beautiful insects in the world. Our Butterfly House will give visitors the chance to see and experience butterflies “up close and personal.” As you approach the Butterfly House you will walk through a beautiful Pollinator Path filled with blooming plants such as Orange Butterfly Weed (providing a place for butterflies to lay their eggs), Yarrow, Purple Coneflower and many more varieties that attract our pollinators and provide them with nectar. Once inside, you will see Monarchs and Painted Ladys as well as a selection of butterflies native to Cape Cod. Also, you will be able to watch caterpillars go through the different stages of a butterfly cycle and you may even be there at the moment a butterfly emerges from its chrysalis to join other butterflies in flight. Guests will be able to feed a butterfly by holding a small sponge brush with juice on it and watch the butterfly up close as it drinks from the sponge! What a great nature experience and photo opportunity! *FEEDING TIMES: MONDAY – FRIDAY: 10am, 12pm and 2pm, SATURDAY & SUNDAY: 10am, 11:30am and 1pm. Butterfly Feeding is a $6.00 fee and Reservations are required.
