Montréal Space for Life invites you to explore some exquisite dimensions of biodiversity during Butterflies Go Free, and plunge into the universe of butterflies from around the world.
From February 14 to April 28, 2013, the Botanical Garden's Main Exhibition Greenhouse will be transformed into a huge butterfly aviary, welcoming thousands of brilliantly coloured butterflies and moths. The stars this year are some extraordinary butterflies that Quebeckers know and love: monarchs. Visitors can learn some of their secrets, including how they need our help to survive! You can also relax in the inspiring Monarch Lounge, with its seats shaped like eggs, caterpillars and chrysalises, created by internationally renowned Quebec designer Liz Vandal.
The Garden restaurant is currently getting a facelift. It will reopen in summer 2013.
Vending machines offering a selection of sandwiches, vegetables, cheeses, snacks, juice, milk and coffee have been added to the Reception Centre.
And during the Butterflies Go Free event, the Garden Boutique will include to its selection of granola and chocolate bars, a variety of fresh baked muffins, ganache/raspberry cookies and butterfly-shaped ginger cookies.
