Monday, January 21 (Martin Luther King Day) – Pinecone Party - Ah the pinecone - a rich and twisted work of art. Join us as we hunt for pinecones, dissect them, use them as artistic tools and create birdfeeders to discover why they really are one of nature's gifts!

Monday, February 18 (President's Day) – Wetland Wonders - Wetlands are wonderful!  This habitat provides numerous ecosystem services and is a home to many of Butterfly Pavilion’s inhabitants.   Through games, exploration, and animal encounters, we’ll discover why the wetlands are the dragonfly’s favorite place!
