Butterfly House Special Events 2020
The Butterfly House at Churchville offers several fun activities outside of the main exhibit itself. While some programs change year to year, several offerings are annual and they include:
Arthropalooza! - Cancelled for the 2020 season
Held the second weekend in August, the big butterfly house event is Arthropalooza! its a fun filled weekend for both families and invertebrate lovers alike that includes activities such as cockroach races, live arthropod demonstrations, a honey and beekeeping display, an Eat-A-Bug Station, dozens of live tarantulas and other live invertebrates. New activities and fun will be added each year so check it out!
Monarch Tag & Release Party - September 13th (tentative)
We still plan to hold our annual monarch tagging this season, just in a different way than usual. To continue providing a safe environment for our visitors, we will be scheduling release times throughout the day. This means the release will be a more intimate experience with the butterflies where each tagger gets to release their butterfly as soon as it is tagged. This will still be a fun experience for the whole family, just in a safe and controlled environment. We look forward to seeing you in the fall!
