Flight of White at the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory
This holiday season, come stroll amongst the thousands of white butterflies that flutter like snowflakes to create a Flight of White in the Tropical Conservatory. It's an exhibit not to be missed at the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory.
This truly unique holiday exhibit transforms the tropical butterfly conservatory into a magical oasis featuring 1000's of additional Rice Paper butterflies flying freely through the Conservatory. With a wingspan of up to 14 cm, the Rice Paper Butterfly, a large white relative of the Monarch, is impossible to miss as it floats through the air moving gently from flower to flower. The Flight of White experience also includes lush white poinsettia flowers, 1000's of sparking white lights, and soft strains of classical music playing in the background.
"The Rice Paper butterfly is a favourite for our guests because they land on visitors the most," says Adrienne Brewster, executive director and curator at the Conservatory. "As visitors stroll through the exhibit they will encounter fascinating information about the Rice Paper's behaviour and biology. This exhibit is a relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of holiday activities."
Flight of White opens December 6, 2014 and continues through the holiday season until January 31, 2015. For more details visit www.cambridgebutterfly.com.
