Need a break from wintry weather? Let beautiful butterflies, fragrant flowers and blessed heat lift your spirits at the Botanical Gardens’ annual Butterflies Go Free event.
From February 23 to April 30, enjoy a soothing walk through the Main Exhibition Greenhouse while hundreds of brightly coloured butterflies flutter around you. A “relaxation zone” is available at the centre of the greenhouse where you can breathe deep and imagine you are already enjoying the warm summer days to come.
Nature interpreters will be on hand to answer any questions about butterflies, caterpillars, metamorphosis and other related topics.
