On Gossamer Wings (K-2)

Learning Takes Flight at the Zoo

The journey from caterpillar to chrysalis/cacoon to butterfly/moth has been travelled in many classrooms. Take learning about butterflies and moths to a whole new level in this lively program at the Calgary Zoo. Special interactive science stations, butterfly costumes, and an exploratory tour through our spectacular butterfly garden make learning fun. (This is a seasonal program offered only when butterflies are in residence at the zoo) Click HERE for a more detailed outline of the program.
