Field Trip A: "Butterfly Pavilion Behind the Scenes Tour”
Visit Colorado’s premier invertebrate zoo! An experienced guide will take you through the exhibits and behind-the-scenes areas, giving your group the ‘ins and outs,’ animal knowledge, and personal attention that they may not experience on their own. See a honeybee hive, touch sea stars and horseshoe crabs, and hold our Chilean rose-hair tarantula, Rosie! Walk amongst the butterflies in our fully immersive rainforest exhibit, and see our behind-the-scenes areas where animal care staff work on invertebrate research and conservation.
Tour leaves the hotel Monday at 1:00 p.m. with expected return at 4:00 p.m. Snacks and bottled water provided.
Information about additional field trips will be added soon. Please check back.
