Butterflies Are Blooming
Discover the largest temporary tropical butterfly exhibit in the nation at Meijer Gardens during the 18th annual Butterflies Are Blooming exhibition. Follow the lifecycle of over 6,000 butterflies beginning as eggs until they emerge as butterflies. Once they emerge, they can be viewed flying freely within the five-story 15,000-square-foot Tropical Conservatory. They sip nectar from the flowering plants and feeding stations, gather among stream beds, and occasionally land on ecstatic viewers. Butterflies Are Blooming is Meijer Gardens’ most attended annual exhibition. For additional exhibit information, visit the web link or call (888) 957-1580.
