Night of the Butterflies Raincheck (Members Only)(Family)

We were sad to cancel our March 17 Night of the Butterflies Member Party, due to an unforeseen areawide water outage.

Happily, we’ve scheduled a raincheck event! Join us for a last look during Fred & Dorothy Fichter Butterflies Are Blooming. Please mark your calendars and register for our Sunday, April 28 6-8pm, Night of the Butterflies Member Party.

Registration is required no later than Monday, April 22.

Please register online, by calling 616.974.5222, or by emailing [email protected]. Butterflies are still blooming, even as the formal exhibition prepares to close. With spring’s later daylight comes more activity and more fluttering friends for you to enjoy.

Thank you again for being a valued member of Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. We look forward to seeing you on April 28!
