LIVE EXHIBIT BRINGS ENTERTAINMENT AND SCIENCE TOGETHER Join the Sensation, See the Butterflies, and Take Home the Experience Savannah, Georgia. Watch the magic of butterflies come alive before your very eyes. The exhibit features over 200 live butterflies from a variety of species tucked away inside a beautiful conservatory. Attendants can enter into the conservatory and enjoy a hands-on experience with the butterflies. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will explain the life cycle of a butterfly to attendees and everyone will be able to interact with the butterflies one-on-one. Savannah Mall will be hosting the event from July 4th through July 27th. The goal of Butterflies is to educate in a fun and safe environment. Butterflies’ strives to educate and engage youths as well as adults. In addition to the experience of seeing, touching and interacting with an array of butterflies, there is an opportunity to take home one’s very own caterpillars. There are also guided tours taking place every 10-30 minutes depending on traffic. One of the staff will take the group inside the conservatory and explain the stages of life between the caterpillar and butterfly. Once the guided tour is over, participants will be able to explore the conservatory on their own; interacting with up to 200 butterflies. Admission is $3 per person and a child 8 and under is free with the adult purchase. In addition to the conservatory, there is also a free craft activity where participants are welcome to create their very own flapping wing butterfly. But wait there’s more! If you’re a teacher or group who loves butterflies we offer something for you as well. There are field trip opportunities for students and other groups to experience the program in depth. With just $4 each student, or group member, gets to enjoy a 3 section field trip. The field trip is one hour and thirty minutes long with each section being a half hour. The first section consists of the wonderful experience inside the house interacting with the butterflies. The second section is a craft where everyone can learn about the parts of the butterfly. Then get to make one’s own to take home. The last section is a presentation where we teach you all about the butterflies’ life cycle, parts, and some interesting fun facts. At the end of the presentation there is also an entertaining Jeopardy type game where students are engaged to answer questions about the presentation. Reservations can be made through our website and with the Creative RT office. “Butterflies!” is a one-stop-shop for everything butterfly-related. There is a retail section which encompasses a wide variety of items, from butterfly suckers to bug houses, clothing and everything in-between. In addition, everyone is welcome to Adopt-a-butterfly.
