Pollinators Miniworld (Clouded Sulphur Butterfly) - Preserved Butterfly Terrarium

Pollinators Miniworld (Clouded Sulphur Butterfly) - Preserved Butterfly Terrarium

June 1st, 2024, 10:00 –12:00 p.m.

Learn how to build your own Preserved Miniworld in this exciting class.  

Taught by The Terrorium Shop, Denver’s natural history store, you will learn how to assemble a beautiful, preserved display showcasing elements of nature. Put your own spin on this itty-bitty world and have it for years to treasure.  

This class will start out with a short lecture on native pollinators by the Butterfly Pavilion and then go into the art portion. Understanding the significance of pollinators in ecosystems helps us appreciate their role in nature’s balance and encourages efforts to protect and conserve these creatures and their habitats. The specimen we will be working with is a Colorado native butterfly, Colias philodice.  

Included is one 2.25″x 3.75″ glass dome with cork base (pictured), 1 mounted Sulphur butterfly specimen (Colias philodice), crystals, dried botanicals, and moss.
