The Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, the largest facility of its kind in North America, houses a spectacular array of butterfly species in a lush tropical environment.
This lavishly illustrated book tells about the thirty most common and popular butterfly species in the conservatory. There are descriptions and photographs of the many trees and flowers on which the butterflies feed and live. The conservatory's eye-catching butterfly garden, which attracts many native species from spring to fall, is also described, and a planting plan for a home butterfly garden, created by Janet Rosenberg and Associates of Toronto, is included.

Brian McAndrew's lively writing and Simon Wilson's breathtaking close-ups of butterflies combine to make Niagara Parks Butterflies an informative guide as well as a perfect souvenir.
