27 Feb Cincinnati Parks Fluttering High
Krohn Conservatory’s annual Butterfly Show is about to celebrate it’s 25th year of excellence this spring with the “Butterflies of Bali” opening March 21, 2020. Each year the show is a beloved Cincinnati tradition with a changing horticulture design, new educational and cultural learning exhibits around butterfly conservation.
The continued success & creative experience has been recognized internationally as a success. Andrea Schepmann, Krohn Conservatory’s manager and once called the “Martha Stewart” of butterfly displays, this past November presented as the key note speaker for the International Conference of Butterfly Exhibitors and Suppliers (IABES) 2019 in Orlando, Florida.
IABES credits the modern butterfly exhibition industry as a key component for public education and awareness related to wild butterfly populations and their natural habitats. Their mission is to protect butterflies in the wild and their natural habitats because without healthy, tropical ecosystems in which butterflies thrive, butterfly exhibition could not exist.
Krohn Conservatory‘s show features thousands of butterflies in free flight through-out the showroom. The wonder and delight it brings to the Cincinnati community creates memories that flutter across the ages. Showcasing how some of the smallest creatures can capture our hearts in the biggest ways. This year’s show, “Butterflies of Bali,” introduces the unique flora, fauna, and culture of Bali to the Cincinnati region in an engaging interactive experience thru butterflies. Education is just one keep component of what helps Cincinnati Parks build better lives and better communities.
