Venture into the immersive live butterfly exhibit in Hempstead House at the Sands Point Preserve.

More than 120 exotic butterflies will call the “Breakfast Room” home, complete with an indoor tropical garden and fresh citrus fruit on which to feed. See if you can identify all of the species! Butterfly crafts and educational activities will be available in the mansion – and, to help conserve the important Monarch butterfly, take home milkweed seeds to create your own butterfly garden.
