Every year, the Biology Department opens their greenhouse to share the amazing collection of Butterflies with the city, for free!
From their site:
"Don’t you love free activities for your family? The Carleton Butterfly Show is an annual event that runs daily from Saturday, September 30, 2017, to Sunday, October 8, 2017, in the greenhouses of Carleton University’s Biology Department.
Some butterflies love to land on colourful clothing or you could just put your hand underneath and they will climb on. So bring your kids or your camera or both and enjoy this exhibit!
The 9-day show features 1,300 exotic butterflies, representing 41 different species worldwide.
More than 1,000 area students and 10,000 visitors dropped by the steamy greenhouses at the west side of Carleton’s campus for last year’s Butterfly show."
Dates: Saturday September 30, 2017 to Sunday October 8, 2017
Times: 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
