Zoo supporters, along with Mayor Tim Jennings and Director John Wright, cut the ribbon on the Butterfly Garden May 5. The Butterfly Garden opened May 7 to the public. The exhibit repurposes a decades-dormant aviary exhibit and teaches about butterflies and the role of native plants in providing habitats.
