Blooms & Butterflies
Take the exhibition home with Painted Lady butterfly larvae and experience the butterfly's amazing metamorphosis. Painted Lady butterflies are native to Ohio and, once they have emerged as adult butterflies, can be released into yards, gardens, and parks to continue the life cycle.
