Celebrate the holidays rainforest-style at Butterfly Wonderland this season. Christmas in the Rainforest, which runs from November 29 – December 28, combines festive holiday elements with thousands of colorful butterflies from around the world in the largest glass conservatory in the country. Don’t miss seeing the spectacular glowing noble fir Christmas tree dressed in shimmering ornaments in shades of blue, silver and white inspired by the brilliant blue morpho butterfly. On weekends throughout the holiday season, a 7 ft. Living Angel adorned in head-to-toe silver with glittering wings of her own stands majestically in the garden for photo opportunities. Guests can also enjoy an extraordinary hand-blown Glass in the Garden art exhibit in the conservatory by resident artist Newt Grover, while listening to the sounds of the season performed live by local Native American flute player, Aaron White or classical violinist Johnathan Levingston. Butterfly Princess Leslie Camp will also be on-hand for special meet and greets with pint-sized butterfly fans.
