Winged Wonders butterfly exhibit opens at Arboretum
Asheville, NC —
On Saturday, May 13th, Winged Wonders comes alive at the North Carolina Arboretum.
News 13's Lauren Brigman gives viewers a sneak peek of the indoor butterfly exhibit, live on News 13 This Morning.
The walk-through exhibit features dozens of monarch butterflies in a greenhouse habitat, with additional species set to be added throughout the length of the exhibit.
Youth Education Specialist for the North Carolina Arboretum, April Hausle, explains that monarch butterflies are endangered species. She says there are things you can do at home, like planting milk weed and other pollinating plants, to help preserve the butterfly species.
The exhibit is included in cost of entry to the Arboretum, which is $14 per vehicle. It is open daily from 9am until 5pm through October 29th.
