Due to continued construction in the Conservatory’s west wing, the re-opening of our Butterfly Forest will be postponed until 2022. In 2020, Phipps began the rehabilitation of these rooms in order to ensure that its prized orchids, ferns and butterflies have a safe, beautiful and long-lasting home. At that time we aimed to re-open our Butterfly Forest in 2021, but complications related to the COVID-19 pandemic have extended the timeline. We now look forward to welcoming beautiful swallowtails, longwings, monarchs and more to Phipps in 2022 in a newly glistening glasshouse room that will ensure their continued exhibition for years to come. As the renovation of our beloved 1893 glasshouse continues, you can support this important work by sponsoring a pane of glass in honor or memory of a loved one.
