Join us June 21-23, from 10AM - 2PM, at our Independence location and get up close and personal to beautiful monarch butterflies and honey bees. Stroll through the Butterfly Tent and observe caterpillars, adults butterflies laying eggs on milkweed, emerging chrysalis and live, free-flying butterflies to feed. And, be sure to take home a Caterpillar Cabana Kit to hatch and release your very own, live butterfly. Cabana Kits include (1) tropical milkweed plant, (1) locally raised monarch caterpillar, and (1) mesh butterfly habitat (kit cost $29.98, reg. retail $42.97). Stop by the Honey Bee Hive Observation Station and watch the bees as they go about their day-to-day activities. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a butterfly and bee encounter the whole family can enjoy and learn from.
