Molbak’s Butterfly Garden

Friday, May 25, 2018 9:30 AM - 6:00 PM

 

Take a walk among a variety of North American butterfly species in the zoo’s immersive Molbak’s Butterfly Garden exhibit. An arching tent structure encloses a landscape of approximately 3,000 square feet, and nearly 500 free-flying butterflies will represent at least 15 species native to North America. Woodland Park Zoo’s seasonal Butterfly Garden emphasizes both the fragility and resilience of nature through the display of what many consider to be among the most beautiful of natural expressions: butterflies and flowers. Guests will learn about the butterfly’s life cycle while watching new butterflies emerge from their chrysalises before flying free in the garden. Behind the Garden is the Microsoft Pollinator Patio where guests can enjoy a beautiful stroll among pollinator-friendly plants while learning how to help pollinators in their own backyard. This garden, open year-round, is full of ideas and actions guests can take on behalf of native pollinators such as hummingbirds, beetles, bees and flies. Molbak’s Butterfly Garden and Microsoft Pollinator Patio are free with zoo admission.
