Second Graders at the Butterfly Biosphere in Thanksgiving Point

Submitted by arlene.haymond on Wed, 03/09/2022 - 07:59

We went in to the butterfly biosphere and learned about habitats. We were able to see lots of different habitats for different insects. The kids also got hold a huge cockroach!  As Utah’s only butterfly conservatory and insectarium, the Butterfly Biosphere at Thanksgiving Point was a great experience. We saw the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Butterfly Conservatory, where over a thousand live butterflies from around the world.  It was a fun day of learning and being on a field trip again!
