Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory

A year-round tropical paradise and home to thousands of exquisite plants, butterflies, moths and bugs, the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory has been a remarkable institution in Waterloo Region since 2001. As a privately owned Canadian corporation, it is entirely self-reliant and must juggle the business of attraction with the responsibility of education, research and conservation. Andalyne Tofflemire, Conservatory Manager and naturalist, tours viewers throughout the magical 2,322-square-metre (25,000-square-foot) facility and its daily behind-the-scenes operations. As part of Digital Doors Open, watch the video below for a behind-the-scenes experience of this tropical paradise.
