Don’t you love free activities for your family? The Carleton Butterfly Show is an annual event that runs daily from Saturday, September 30, 2017, to Sunday, October 8, 2017, in the greenhouses of Carleton University’s Biology Department.

Some butterflies love to land on colourful clothing or you could just put your hand underneath and they will climb on. So bring your kids or your camera or both and enjoy this exhibit!

The 9-day show features 1,300 exotic butterflies, representing 41 different species worldwide.

More than 1,000 area students and 10,000 visitors dropped by the steamy greenhouses at the west side of Carleton’s campus for last year’s Butterfly show.

Donations are greatly appreciated and necessary to keep the tradition going.

You can donate at the event or HERE.

Contributors to the Annual Butterfly Show are:
