Take a Day Trip to Two Butterfly Exhibits to Try This Fascinating and Rewarding HobbyMar 10, 2021 01:30PM ● By Virginia Dean
though New Hampshire doesn’t have a number of venues dedicated to butterfly
watching, there are outdoor butterfly gardens that are close by and allow for
wonderful day trips to see these colorful fliers. Located just ten miles across
the border from Nashua in eastern NH, The Butterfly Place in Westford, MA
offers an indoor butterfly garden that features free-flying butterflies in an
enclosed environment, and a path where visitors may wander among them. The
Butterfly Place also has an observation area where visitors find the stages of
a butterfly’s life in progress, with eggs, caterpillars, and cocoons on display.
The family-operated business opened on February 14 and closes on October 31. Cost is
$12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $8 for children under 13.
