A rite of spring
There can be no better way to indulge one’s fervor for the season than to visit the Spring Butterfly Exhibit at the Marshall Pavilion of the Desert Botanical Garden (DBG), now in its 11th year. The fully-enclosed, 36 by 80 feet garden habitat enables the viewer to experience a virtual lepidopteran kaleidoscope. As ever, DBG volunteers (the “flight crew”) will be on hand to help visitors identify butterfly species and the plants that sustain them. The Discovery Station allows even closer inspection of these marvels of the insect world.
The exhibit opens on March 2 and continues to May 12
