Memorial Day weekend will be fluttering with butterflies when Woodland Park Zoo reopens Molbak’s Butterfly Garden: Friday, May 27 through Monday, September 5. The seasonal garden has been closed the last two summers.
Molbak’s Butterfly Garden is a magical experience where guests of all ages, backgrounds and abilities can experience the wondrous world of “flying flowers.” Stroll among hundreds of free-flying butterflies inside an enclosed space, all while surrounded by beautiful flowers. Learn about the life cycle of these colorful, winged insects while watching larvae undergo a miraculous metamorphosis as they emerge as butterflies before flying.
Behind Molbak’s Butterfly Garden is the year-round Microsoft Pollinator Patio, a glorious garden complete with ideas and actions to take on behalf of native pollinators such as butterflies, hummingbirds, beetles, bees and flies.
