GREEN BAY (WCWF) -- Green Bay Botanical Garden's first-ever Butterflies and Blooms exhibit is in full swing for the summer season! Visitors of all ages can experience the beauty and radiance of the winged beauties up-close, while also learning about their important roles in nature and how we can support them.
The exhibit contains 300 new butterflies featuring more than 20 different species native to Wisconsin arrive each week, totaling 4,500 butterflies throughout the summer. The different species includes Monarch, Giant Swallowtail, American Lady, Painted Lady, Red Admiral and more. From 1-3 p.m.- it's feeding time! That's when visitors can receive a feeding stick dipped into a sweet and tasty butterfly treat, as shown the below.
The mesh butterfly house is located in the garden patch across from the Stumpf Hobbit House. The exhibit is set to run from June-August 31st, 2019, from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m daily. But if it's a rainy day, the exhibit will be closed.
