Butterfly Festival

Next Saturday, May 19, the entire family can enjoy the Butterfly Festival at The University of Michigan Natural History Museum (1109 Geddes Ave., Ann Arbor). From 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. visit with live Monarch butterflies in each stage of their life cycle.

The kids will get a chance to use microscopes to see what butterfly and moth wings are really made of, and metamorphose into a butterfly when making their very own butterfly wings to take home! After you explore, families can get a chance to get dirty by helping the museum plant new perennials in the butterfly garden.
