Butterflies on stage & in the garden

Butterfly: The Story of a Life Cycle
Sunday, March 22, 1:00-2:00
Overture Center, Capitol Theater
Tickets: $10-$18

"Science takes center stage in this microscopic look at the insect world. Hudson Vagabond Puppets, known for larger-than-life puppetry and masks, examines the life cycle of the monarch butterfly, following the amazing metamorphosis from egg to caterpillar to adult butterfly, culminating in an incredible 1,500-mile round trip journey to Mexico. Each stage of the journey is brought to life by giant puppets, song and dance. You’ll meet a bunch of other creatures along the way, from the lowly earthworm to the majestic dragonfly, and learn about the monarch’s symbiotic relationship with the milkweed plant. Beautiful scrolling scenery helps make this scientific foray enjoyable for kids and adults alike."

Olbrich's Blooming Butterflies
July 15th - August 9th 10:00-4:00 daily
Tickets: $5 adults, $3 children 3-12 yrs, Free: 2 yrs and under

"Experience the magnificence of free-flying butterflies while strolling through the tropical Bolz Conservatory. Live butterflies emerge from chrysalises daily in the Conservatory, including low-flyers like the playful yellow and black striped zebras and bright orange julias. More than a dozen species of butterflies, native to both Wisconsin and the more tropical areas of the southern United States can be seen at various times during the exhibit."
