Families can scout out such winged beauties as monarchs and julias while strolling through a greenhouse and a lush meadow planted with native New York blooms (think lilac and echinacea). After comparing bug life cycles and peeking into the Nursery to see zookeepers caring for butterflies, kids can stop by the Pollination Hall of Fame photo booth to transform themselves into bumblebees, midge flies or other buzzy critters.
