For 20 years Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory has fulfilled its mission to educate visitors about butterflies and to foster a better appreciation for the important role that butterflies and other insects play in nature.
Thanks to our dedicated team of professionals, immersive exhibits, special events, curriculum-based educational programming, and endangered species conservation work, we continue to align with this mission and adapt with these core values in mind.
We are so thankful for the support we’ve experienced from the community over the past two decades.
Some of the large rocks you’ll see in the Conservatory were donated by a local quarry and brought in during construction of the facility. Using wheelbarrows and shovels, a team of high school students helped to transport tonnes of soil into the Conservatory.
We remain humbled by the countless stories of happy memories that we hear from the community – stories of field trips from elementary schools and families gathering for a Sunday afternoon stroll.
That’s why we’re taking a look through the archives in celebration of our 20th Anniversary Year and sharing photos on our social channels during #ThrowbackThursdays & we’d love for you to join us!
