Museum Hosts Butterfly Fest
It's a festival that will make your heart flutter.
Florida's Museum of Natural History is hosting Butterfly Fest this weekend as a celebration of wings and backyard things.
The two day festival is part educational outreach and part family fun.
It features a plant sale to encourage pollinators like butterflys and bees to help fertilize plants native to North Central Florida and face painting, arts and crafts and performances.
There's a certain whimsy associated with the butterfly and festival organizers say there's good reason for it.
In addition to the other activites, the festival will feature a presentation from a UF researcher who has been tracking the monarch butterfly's migration to Mexico.
The event is free and open to the public.
