Butterfly Forest Update

Phipps’ beloved butterflies are taking the summer off while we make important renovations to their home in the Stove Room so they have a safe place to flutter for years to come! You can help our efforts by sponsoring a glass pane, which protects and sustains every room in our magnificent original 13-room glasshouse. We look forward to bringing the butterflies back to the Conservatory in 2021 — and in the meantime, stay tuned as our Summer of Pollinators begins in June, a series of activities, classes and more to celebrate butterflies and all the other native pollinators we support at Phipps.
