Hunt for families over the long weekend April 22 – 25, 2011. This event includes a word-scramble activity where children will look for letters hidden throughout the Conservatory to spell a secret phrase for a chance to win a grand prize gift basket donated by Pop & Lolly’s Candy Shop. Thanks to generous donations from Nestle, Mars and Hershey, each child will also receive one complimentary treat  (while supplies last) after their visit.

Families are encouraged to download and print a special Niagara Parks colouring page in advance of their visit and NPC staff will be pleased to post the artwork on site.

Admission is $12.25 for adults (ages 13+), $7.95 for children (6 – 12 years), and children five and under are admitted FREE (prices in Cdn. plus tax). Parking is free.

The Butterfly Conservatory will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Friday – Sunday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Easter Monday, with the last visitors admitted 30 minutes before closing. Please call (905) 356-8119 for details.
