Butterflies: Colors in Motion (Grades 2 and 3)

February 17, 2014 - February 21, 2014


Interact with live butterflies in an indoor tropical rain forest! In this camp, you will observe these fascinating insects up close and discover the differences between butterflies and moths, what the colors on their wings signal to other animals, and how a crawling caterpillar transforms into a winged creature. Go behind the scenes to learn what butterflies eat and how they are cared for at the Museum—and see the world through the eyes of a butterfly!
