Wings of Paradise Butterfly Conservatory, Cambridge - Day Trips from Toronto
The Wings of Paradise butterfly conservatory is located in Cambridge, Ontario; just over an hour's drive from Toronto. Butterflies are one of nature's most attractive creatures. They are gentle and lovely to look at; they do nothing more than help to make our world more beautiful. They feed on the nectar of certain plants and help to pollinate other plants.
The conservatory houses from 2,000 to 3,000 free-flying butterflies. In addition, Wings of Paradise has several free-flying birds, 80 species of plants and several insect species. It also features the Paradise Garden cafe which is open from 10am until 3:30pm. Weddings are welcomed and often held on the grounds of the conservatory, as are birthday parties and a summer day-camp. School groups are also welcome.
