Participants will be able to see the life cycle of a butterfly, from egg and caterpillar stages, to chrysalis and butterfly and how adult butterflies are wonderfully diverse in shape, size and color. Watch them flying freely among the greenery, fluttering from blossom to blossom in search of nourishing nectar, resting in a shady spot to cool off or sipping water from a puddle.
