MONTREAL, Feb. 13, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Media representatives are invited to join the Insectarium team in the Botanical Garden's Main Exhibition Greenhouse and plunge into the world of butterflies and moths from around the globe. The stars of this 16th edition of Butterflies Go Free are monarchs, extraordinary butterflies that Quebeckers know and love. You can learn some of their secrets, including how they need our help to survive and how you can take concrete action to help them, by creating a butterfly garden.
You can also relax in the inspiring Monarch Lounge and meet its creator, Quebec designer Liz Vandal. Try out its seats shaped like the four phases in the monarch's life: eggs, caterpillars, chrysalises and butterflies.
