Butterflies of the Philippines at Krohn Conservatory

Butterflies of the Philippines at Krohn Conservatory

I look forward to the Butterfly Show at the Krohn Conservatory each year.  The butterflies are gorgeous and it’s so exciting when you discover one has picked you to land on. The key is the have your camera ready because those moments happen FAST! I’m looking forward to discovering what this year’s theme as “Butterflies of the Philippines” will bring.

Here is a little more about this year’s show.

This year’s exhibit features the colorful and exotic Butterflies of the Philippines, and they will preside over a majestic tribute to the marvelous Filipino culture. The showroom will be filled with butterflies soaring among bold displays that will immerse visitors in a sumptuous tropical environment. A large, dramatic mural of an erupting volcano and a wildly cascading waterfall will provide a striking backdrop for many tropical plants such as ornate orchids, brilliant bromeliads, delicate anthuriums and dramatic dracaenas.

Many exciting events have been planned throughout the 12-week Butterfly show to allow visitors to experience the free-soaring butterflies and to discover even more about the vibrant, engaging and gracious Filipino culture.

Flight of the Butterflies at the Cincinnati Museum Center

A few months ago, my family and I attended the “Flight of the Butterflies” Omnimax film at the Cincinnati Museum Center.

We absolutely loved being able to watch the process of the butterflies. I also now want to go to Mexico to see them in person.

Here is more from the Museum Center website:

The iconic monarch butterfly is a true marvel of nature. Weighing less than a penny,
it makes one of the longest migrations on Earth across a continent, with pinpoint
navigational accuracy, to a secluded place it has never been. Follow the monarchs’
perilous and extraordinary journey and join hundreds of millions
of real butterflies in the remote mountain peaks of Mexico.

For the first time ever, look inside a chrysalis, thanks to advanced MRI and
CT scans. Be captivated by the true and compelling story of an intrepid scientist’s
40- year search to find their secret hideaway, with the help
of citizen scientists across North America. Supported by the National Science
Foundation and a high quality educational outreach program, the film interweaves
spellbinding natural history with an uplifting human story.

 

 

Flight of the Butterflies is at the Cincinnati Museum Center for a limited time!

You have until June 30th to see this amazing film!
