Butterflies and Caterpillars

Wings of Fancy Butterfly and Caterpillar Exhibit at Brookside Gardens, Wheaton, MD. As visitors enter the South Conservatory, they are surrounded by hundreds of brilliant live butterflies from North America, Costa Rica, Africa and Asia soaring among colorful flowers and going about their business of drinking nectar and looking for others of their kind.

Visitors learn about their amazing metamorphosis, the important role butterflies play in healthy ecosystems, and how to ensure these beautiful insects thrive in our own gardens. More information.
