A tropical paradise of exotic greenery and flowing water, create a rainforest environment in a climate controlled conservatory, it is home to over 2000 free-flying tropical butterflies. Downstream of Niagara Falls, the Niagara Parks have established a Butterfly Conservatory in the Botanical Garden.

Even though some children and adults tried to coax them to attach to fingers or hands, quite a few didn’t need any persuasion. We had them land on us.
