Butterfly Blizzard

Come inside to experience a different kind of blizzard – a Butterfly Blizzard in Reiman Gardens’ Christina Reiman Butterfly Wing! You won’t want to miss this opportunity to release your very own butterfly in this tropical, indoor garden.

Participants will get to choose how many butterflies they release. Each butterfly will be in its own container. Participants will learn a little about each of their butterflies and how to release them. Participants will get a certificate with their names and the species they released on it. A butterfly-related craft will be available that participants can also participate in if they choose to.

Participants can arrive anytime between 8:30 to 9:45 a.m. The Butterfly Wing opens to the public at 10 a.m., so you may want to consider arriving by 9:30. Butterflies will not be released after the Butterfly Wing opens to the public. The accompanying craft station will be available until 10:30.

A registration link can be found at the Reiman Gardens event page
