Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park will feature its Fred & Dorothy Fichter “Butterflies are Blooming” exhibition starting on March 1.

The exhibition, which runs through April 30, will showcase more than 7,000 tropical butterflies, such as Swallowtails, Charaxes, Paper Kites and more.

Over 1,000 pupae will also arrive at Meijer Gardens weekly from around the world. Guests can watch as chrysalides and cocoons are placed in the Observation Station, where they will transform and spread their wings for the first time.

There will also be Monarch caterpillars on display, which guests can find feeding on milkweed host plants mixed in with the flowering spring plantings and glossy green foliage.

More information, including ticket sales, is online.
