The zoo's aflutter

Flamingos are getting all the attention these days, but there’s another exhibit opening this weekend that you don’t want to miss…

The always popular Butterflies and Blooms exhibit re-opens for the summer season on Fri., May 23 (now free with zoo admission). You’ll be surrounded by nearly 1000 free-flying butterflies representing 15 North American species. If you’re lucky, you may even get one to land on you. Here’s a tip: butterflies are attracted to bright colors!
