GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – It’s safe to say, a lot of us have Spring Fever right now, we’re starting to see more birds, more sunshine, and butterflies! Typically, you might start seeing butterflies emerging in May when temperatures are consistently hovering in the 50 degree range but you can see butterflies now at Meijer Gardens at the insanely popular “Butterflies are Blooming” exhibition! The butterflies there live in a warm, tropical, weather controlled climate! We stopped by Meijer Gardens to talk with the experts there, and learn some interesting facts about butterflies, for your next visit!
