Learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom and in many cases the learning opportunities outside of school create more enthusiasm than those within. I think that is why they do school field trips! One class trip that I went on with my oldest son was to The Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory. The kids were fascinated by the different kinds of butterflies and how they would land on their heads and hands. It was a great learning experience for them too, because they were taught about conservation, butterflies and migration.

While it was fun to visit as part of a class trip, there are limits to that. I would prefer to bring all of my children at once so that they can share the experience and learn together. When you visit as a family you can take your time exploring and looking at everything without any time restraints. You can give the gift of exploring the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory all year long by purchasing gift certificates for Family Memberships as Christmas presents. For just $99.85 + tax you can send an entire family to The Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory all year long.

Members get the privilege of visiting the tropical conservatory all year round and they also get to take advantage of special events like BugFeast that runs during March Break! Have you ever eaten a bug? Come Hug-a-Bug on Family Day weekend, attend a Guided Tour in the summer months, or bring a book and simply visit for some quiet time. Another great event is the Conservatory’s Flight of White event which opens on December 6th and runs until January 30th, 2015.

This truly unique holiday exhibit transforms the tropical Butterfly Conservatory into a magical oasis featuring 1000’s of additional Rice Paper butterflies that flutter like snowflakes throughout the Conservatory. With a wingspan of up to 14cm, the Rice Paper Butterfly, a large white relative of the Monarch, is impossible to miss as it floats through the air moving gently from flower to flower. The Flight of White experience also includes lush tropical poinsettia flowers, 1000’s of sparking white lights, and soft strains of classical music playing in the background.

That sounds like some great family time to me, and you can visit with a daily pass or a Family Membership.
