Events Description

Every year the Carleton University Biology Department hosts its annual Butterfly Show. During the 9 days leading into the Thanksgiving weekend, over 1300 live exotic butterflies are released into the Nesbitt Biology building greenhouses. The public is invited to come visit these beautiful creatures and learn more about them.

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!
