things you wish you knew about Niagara Falls

Butterfly Conservatory

With over 2,000 free flying tropical butterflies in a lush rain forest setting complete with waterfalls and pools, this is a photographer’s dream come true.

Observe the numerous species as they flutter, soar and feed on nectar and pollen. In summer, step outside the conservatory to experience a native butterfly garden that attracts many of the 120 species of butterflies native to Ontario. Open year-round.

Located 9 km (5 miles) north of the Falls on the Niagara Parkway on the grounds of the Botanical Gardens & School of Horticulture
