Ever wonder what goes on behind the curtain? Well, wonder no more! Come and be a Butterfly Keeper for a day! Learn how to care for butterflies, what they need to be healthy and happy, and help our keepers with the day-to-day operation at the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center. You’ll learn how to identify tropical butterflies and help release newly-emerged butterflies into our Conservatory. You’ll get to participate in the unpacking of a new shipment of butterflies and learn all about where they come from. Participants will also help feed the butterflies by preparing and setting out fruit baskets. And you’ll see what kinds of plants are important for the butterflies and why; and how we maintain a conservatory filled with tropical plants. Participants receive a “Butterfly Keeper for a Day” t-shirt and a certificate of completion. The program includes Gardens admission and a bagged lunch. Participants must be 8 years old or older.
Instructor: Jennifer Demarest, Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center Staff
