If you’re looking for something to do this weekend that’s fun and filled with beauty, look no further than Pearlridge Center.

The Butterfly Conservatory, located at Downtown Center Court, houses hundreds of living butterflies fluttering freely among local flora. It’s an ideal Spring Break activity for the keiki, who can witness the life cycle of the lovely creatures from egg to butterfly. If you’re lucky, a butterfly may choose to land on your head, hand or shoulder or, better yet, on a small keiki who will find magic in the experience.

You can also learn about the Kamehameha butterfly, the state insect and only one of two butterflies native to Hawaii.

The Conservatory will be open Saturday, March 22, through Saturday, April 19, Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is $3 per person, with keiki under eight years of age entering free wtih a paying adult.
