From a Niagara Parks Commission press release seen at Niagara at Large:
This August 18th, The Niagara Parks Commission officially launched its new pollinator exhibit, Saving the Pollinators; Our World Depends on It, at the Butterfly Conservatory with an announcement and unveiling led by Niagara Parks Chair, Janice Thomson.
At this new bilingual exhibit, visitors can learn more about Ontario’s pollinating species, from bees to hummingbirds, who, despite their small size, play a major role in maintaining our environment.
From the Niagara Falls Review (includes 14 photos):
The Butterfly Conservatory is hosting a new exhibit, ‘Wild Ontario – A Celebration of Ontario’s Biodiversity’ will be open to the public from April 29 until June 6. The exhibit, part of the Niagara Parks Commission’s ‘Begin Here’ Ontario 150th celebrations and created by Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo, is also funded through the government’s Ontario 150 funding program.

Last week I received this email newsletter from Niagara Falls Tourism:
From the Niagara Falls Review:
The Niagara Parks Commission’s Butterfly Conservatory will undergo a metamorphosis of sorts in the coming days.
The popular tourist attraction will temporarily close Jan. 9 to allow staff to carry out general maintenance and cleaning jobs that can’t be completed when the site is open to the public.
It will re-open Jan. 16.
The large trees and vines in the tropical enclosure will be trimmed back, plants will be rearranged and paths will be given a good scrub down, said curator Cheryl Tyndall.
The seven-day closure will also allow for the first phase of a project to renovate the auditorium.
