Butterflies LIVE! Featured in the RTD, First Butterfly Shipment to Arrive Tomorrow

by Jonah Holland, PR & Marketing Coordinator, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

We got a really sweet write-up in today’s Richmond Times-Dispatch on Butterflies LIVE! that is opening next week (May 22nd) at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Check it out!

Butterflies seem to be a hot topic these days,  Maymont opens their new butterfly trail with a Garden Celebration this Sunday  and then our exhibit opens on Friday.

I’ll be posting some behind the seens photos soon, our first shipment of 100 adults and 500 pupa should arrive tomorrow — so stay tuned!

I’m so excited to see the butterflies — especially the blue morpho butterfly, pictured here.
