SCOTTSDALE, AZ – (March 26, 2020) – For those parents trying to balance continued learning and keeping their children entertained while forced indoors during the COVID-19 outbreak, there’s plenty of fun — and educational — ways to stay busy with Butterfly Wonderland. Despite the temporary closure to the popular Arizona Boardwalk attraction, Butterfly Wonderland will be bringing the rainforest world to its fans with the launch of “Your Rainforest Adventure…From Home,” a digital series posted to its website and social media pages featuring both e-learning opportunities and entertaining, engaging content for its fans. Look for exciting educational programming along with an abundance of photos and videos of the attraction’s signature and treasured butterflies, as well as their fascinating insects and remarkable reptiles—making “Your Rainforest Adventure” a welcome respite for families to explore together while coping at home.
“Since opening, Butterfly Wonderland has become a favorite destination for many and plays an important role for guests to learn about the rainforest and the fascinating creatures that live there, including the magnificent butterfly,” said Dee Mangulins, Executive Director of Butterfly Wonderland. “A visit to Butterfly Wonderland presents the perfect opportunity to enjoy rich educational experiences and share time with family and friends. We couldn’t let those moments cease while we are on our short hiatus. We are excited to connect with our fans through these virtual experiences until we reopen our doors to welcome them back.”
In addition to the wonderful instructive and enjoyable content found through the “Your Rainforest Adventure” series posted to Butterfly Wonderland’s website, Facebook and Instagram pages, fans wishing to support Butterfly Wonderland and mitigate the significant cost of the temporary closure can help by pre-purchasing General Admission Tickets through the 2 Tickets To-Go program.
