Imagine delicate butterflies soaring through the air and resting on beautiful flowers while you, and your little ones, capture unique glimpses into their lives!

Such an experience awaits you at The Wings of Fancy Live Butterfly & Caterpillar Exhibit located within Brookside Gardens. This living exhibit brings you up close to these gentle creatures with opportunities to learn about their metamorphosis and the role they play in healthy ecosystems. As one of the only butterfly aviaries in the area, visitors can feast their eyes upon stunning butterflies from North America, Costa Rica, Africa, and Asia as they flutter about drinking nectar!
