2022 Butterfly House & Pollinator Path!
June 1 @ 10:20 am - September 4 @ 3:40 pm
The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster announces the 2022 Butterfly House & Pollinator Path season Wednesday, June 1st through Sunday, September 4th 10:20am – 3:40pm.
Butterflies are among the most beautiful insects in the world. Our Butterfly House will give visitors the chance to see and experience butterflies up close and personal. As you approach the Butterfly House you will walk through a Pollinator Path filled with multi-colored blooming plants such as Orange Butterfly Weed (providing a place for butterflies to lay their eggs), Yarrow, Purple Coneflower and many more varieties that attract our pollinators and provide them with nectar. Once inside, you will be able to watch caterpillars go through the different stages of their life cycle and you may even be there at the moment a butterfly emerges from its chrysalis to join the others in flight!
* The Butterfly House is a pre-paid ticket: $30 for up to 8 people per pod per 15-minute time slot. Daily opportunities: 10:20 am, 10:40 am, 11:30 am, 11:50 am, 12:10 pm, 12:50 pm, 1:10 pm, 2:00 pm, 2:20 pm, 2:40 pm, 3:00 pm, 3:20 pm.
