Lopata Learning Lab

Children's activities in the Lopata Learning Lab 

The Butterfly House offers school field trips and scout programs in our interactive Lopata Learning Lab, and outreach programs where we will come to you. 

In addition, we offer formal classes for adults and youth + family throughout the year.

The Lopata Learning Lab is primarily used for education programs and special events, but open to the public on select days.  In the Lopata Learning Lab families can engage in hands on learning and discover the insect world.  Some of the activities available are:

  • Insect and nature puzzles
  • Games
  • Books and a "reading cocoon" where families can share a story together.
  • Specimens of real insects and living insect displays.
