Discover the powerful relationships between flowers and butterflies by experiencing the Fred & Dorothy Fichter Butterflies Are Blooming exhibition at your own pace during this self-guided program designed especially for Scouts! Observe, record, sketch, and wonder as you explore the unique flowers and butterflies in the Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory with a variety of looking guides and your very own field journal. Draw inspiration from your observations to create a one-of-a-kind “flower power garden” with a take-home art kit. Finally, watch a recording of the Who Am I? A Butterfly Ballet from the comfort of your own home.
