Fred & Dorothy Fichter Butterflies Are Blooming in the Lena Meijer Children’s Garden with engaging outdoor educational activities.

Throughout the Lena Meijer Children's Garden:

  • Experience the life cycle of butterflies and moths with creative costumes—crawl out of an egg, curl up like a caterpillar, wrap up like a chrysalis and fly like a butterfly.
  • Create a unique design using colorful scales on a giant butterfly wing.
  • Hunt for butterfly and moth life cycle replicas.
  • Engage in spring-themed story times.
  • Navigate the Butterfly Maze, discovering images of Michigan butterflies and moths along the way.

In the Log Cabin:

  • Perform a butterfly-themed puppet show.
  • Manipulate pieces to complete a giant butterfly puzzle.
  • Discover a variety of moth and butterfly books to read.

There’s something for all ages! Activities vary daily; check at the Information Center for what is happening each day.
