The Butterflies & Blooms exhibition is a butterfly exhibition where visitors can immerse themselves in a habitat filled with hundreds of live butterflies. This exhibition is filled with species native to South America, Asia, North America, and Africa, as well as those native to Illinois. For the 2015 season, the 2,800-square-foot white mesh enclosure is located on the Annex Road, as you head out from the Visitor Center to McDonald Woods.
