What will you do?

During our first stop in the Butterfly Farm we will learn how butterflies reproduce, their life cycle, their habitat, feeding and predators, and we will see different species of butterflies both local and tropical. From there we go outdoors to see the eggs and caterpillars. Then we head to the laboratory where we will help the development of the extremely delicate chrysalises. Finally, in the flight area we will see the butterflies in action: eating, mating, flying!
