Over 200 LIVE Butterflies Arrive at the Savannah Mall for the Summer

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Savannah Mall is currently hosting a LIVE Butterfly Exhibit that will run until Saturday, August 2. The exhibit features over 200 live butterflies from a variety of species tucked away inside a conservatory, decorated and complete with plants conducive to butterfly flight. The program also features educational displays, butterfly crafts and life-cycle kiosks.

Guided tours will be taking place every 10 to 30 minutes inside the conservatory to explain the stages of life between the caterpillar and butterfly. Once the guided tour is over, participants will be able to explore the conservatory on their own. Admission is $3 per person and children 2 years-old and under will be free with the purchase of one paid admission.

After exploring the conservatory, everyone has the option to purchase an Adopt-a-butterfly kit to watch caterpillars grow and hatch into beautiful butterflies. For every kit sold, the Savannah Mall will be donating $1 to the benefit the animals at Oatland Island Wildlife Center. There will also be a free craft activity where kids can create their very own flapping wing butterfly.

The LIVE Butterfly Exhibit will be located in the Center Court of the Savannah Mall, from noon to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon until 6 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit http://www.adoptabutterfly.com or www.savannahmall.com

There are also field trip opportunities for schools, churches and other groups to experience the program in depth, where youth will tour the conservatory, learn about the parts of a butterfly and the life cycle, and have to chance to test their knowledge in a Jeopardy type game. Reservations can be made through http://www.adoptabutterfly.com.
