March Morpho Mania

February and March 2017
Tuesdays through Sundays, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Escape the cold by visiting Morpho Mardi Gras: Bugs, Butterflies and Beads! Bring your Krewe to the carnival during the months of February and March. Join the party at our Bug Parade, make a masquerade mask, and immerse yourself in a sea of blue as the Butterfly House floods the tropical conservatory with thousands of Blue Morpho butterflies. With the sounds of jazz in the air, inaugurate the season with these and other majestic creatures. This year, we will be featuring a larger-than-life glass Blue Morpho sculpture, by Craig Mitchell Smith.  

Throughout the event, visitors will be able to see over 1,000 Morphos in free flight while learning about the critical role butterflies play in nature, and how the Butterfly House is involved with butterfly conservation efforts in Costa Rica. Come inaugurate the season with these majestic creatures at the Butterfly House and immerse yourself in a sea of blue!
