Today is one of the rare $5 Days at the Butterfly and Insect Center, so you won’t want to miss out. The center features an array of various insects and other creatures for patrons to interact with and occasionally hold in their own hands! I will be missing out on holding a tarantula (scary) but don’t let your fear hold you back from experiencing the Butterfly Pavilion and all of its amenities! Enjoy all of the creatures Mother Nature has provided us to learn about.
