April 27-July 7
The majestic Monarch butterfly is famous for its astonishing 3000-mile migration from Canada to Mexico. Discover the paths and perils of the Monarch as you “follow” their route in this exhibit. You can also learn whether other butterflies travel distances and how a species survives without migrating, since many local species escape the cold without leaving home. In the midst of the exhibit you can enjoy a personal encounter with hundreds of non-migratory tropical butterflies as they fly, feed, and offer an array of color. You can share your family’s migration on our world map, from Great-Grandfather’s coutnry of origin to your current home. Sponsored by WMEE and WPTA.
