A Friend to Every Butterfly Scout Program

Sunday, December 2
Noon–4 p.m.

Scout troops can flutter into the museum for a behind-the-scenes experience in Dancing Wings Butterfly Garden. Enjoy a classroom-style talk with The Strong’s biologist, who will provide fascinating facts and information about butterflies. Stroll through Upstate New York’s only year-round, indoor butterfly garden featuring hundreds of butterflies and tropical flowers. Design a butterfly feeder for your yard and make butterfly seed packets to give during the holiday season. Store your new creations in a decorated butterfly bag. This experience includes general museum admission to explore other exhibits, including Imagination Destination, Toy Halls of Fame, and American Comic Book Heroes.

Registration is required. Space is limited. This program is for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in kindergarten through grade 5. Troop leaders can make reservations by calling 585-263-2700.
