Butterflies!

This exhibit features a lush, tropical garden filled with beautiful butterflies from around the world.

Butterflies!
  • A monarch butterfly alights on a flower in the Haddonfield Friends School’s butterfly/peace garden, one of the half dozen monarchs released by the kindergartners October 3, 2013, after raising them and learning about their metamorphosis and migration. The whole school turned out for the release, then the kindergartners, dressed as monarchs, paraded through downtown Haddonfield to symbolize the annual migration of the butterflies to to Mexico.
