Sunday, April 28, 2019 - 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
The annual Fred & Dorothy Fichter Butterflies Are Blooming exhibition at Meijer Gardens is the largest temporary tropical butterfly exhibition in the nation. Tropical butterflies from around the world fly freely in the Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory every March and April.
Throughout the exhibition, there is special educational programming and the Lena Meijer Children’s Garden offers butterfly-themed activities.
New this year, see how light and shadow affect butterfly behavior, color and the natural environment where they flourish. Watch for glittery wings, dappled light on plants and where shadows are created to take you by surprise.
