Cape Cod Butterflies Fluttering for Guests Once Again
After closing due to the Covid pandemic, Butterflies of Cape Cod is finally welcoming guests again for the first time in two years. The only butterfly habitat on the SouthCoast opens its doors today and should remain full of fluttering for the entire summer.
People have been patiently waiting for years to return to Butterflies of Cape Cod. After the end of the 2019 season, they sadly closed their doors for years waiting for the time to be right and the conditions to be safe enough to welcome guests into their enclosed butterfly pavilion.
Now the family run Bourne facility is again allowing guests to literally surround themselves in butterflies and those eager guests seem thrilled.
If you have never been inside a butterfly pavilion, it is amazing. Appearing a little like a greenhouse, the building is full of plants butterflies love and the gorgeous insects flitting around among them. If you are really lucky and stand really still, you might even have a butterfly land right on you.
There are lots of butterflies to see at Butterflies of Cape Cod too. Monarchs, Swallowtails, Checkerspots and more are emerging from their chrysalis every day.
A fantastic day trip for the kids, the whole family can immerse themselves in butterflies while also learning about the insects' lifecycle and migratory patterns not to mention the facility's conservation efforts for these beautiful bugs. I also love learning about the best flowers you can plant at home to attract butterflies to your own yard.
Of course I'll never have dozens fluttering around in my yard, so that aspect alone makes stopping by Butterflies of Cape Cod worth the trip.
