If you have been in our Butterfly Encounter, you know how beautiful the butterflies look. They are not actually native to Connecticut, so where in the world do our butterflies come from? Today, on of our butterfly experts is here to share with you the origin of the butterflies found in our butterfly encounter.
The Butterfly Encounter is open Tuesday-Sunday, 11AM-3PM. A separate ticket is required for entry into the Butterfly Encounter. To reserve your ticket for your next adventure to the Science Center, visit CTScienceCenter.org.
