NEW THIS SUMMER

Animal Grossology
Audubon Aquarium of the Americas
Visitors experience some of the stinkiest, slimiest and downright yukkiest creatures on Earth in this new exhibit that takes a slightly different view of the animal kingdom. Solid science and interactive entertainment translates into big fun for Aquarium guests. Learn why cows chew cud, how snail slime could help treat cystic fibrosis, and why the dung beetle is nature's original pooper scooper. Limited engagement - included with admission.

Butterflies in Flight
Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium
The popular Joe W. and Dorothy Dorsett Brown Foundation Butterflies in Flight exhibit has reopened with an amazing array of butterflies, new plantings and enhanced exhibitry.

This serene, Asian-inspired garden flutters with life as butterflies swoop and soar from one flower to another-perhaps even resting for a moment on the shoulder of a visitor. Close encounters with these beautiful creatures provide vivid memories that last a lifetime.

Audubon members now go FREE to the Butterfly Garden and Insectarium!
