Flight of White – Cancelled

Please note: due to the ongoing public health situation surrounding COVID-19, the Flight of White event for 2022 remains tentative.

December 1, 2022 – January 31, 2023 

This truly unique holiday exhibit transforms the tropical butterfly conservatory into a magical oasis featuring 1000’s of additional Rice Paper butterflies flying freely through the Conservatory. With a wingspan of up to 14cm, the Rice Paper Butterfly, a large white relative of the Monarch, is impossible to miss as it floats through the air moving gently from flower to flower. The Flight of White experience also includes lush white poinsettia flowers, 1000’s of sparkling white lights, and soft strains of classical music playing in the background.

“The Rice Paper butterfly is a favourite for our guests because they land on visitors the most” says Adrienne Brewster, executive director and curator at the Conservatory. “As visitors stroll through the exhibit they will encounter fascinating information about the Rice Paper’s behaviour and biology. This exhibit is a relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of holiday activities”.

Flight of White is included with paid admission.
