On the premises, there is a screened butterfly vivarium that houses over 20 species of Lepidoptera and the lush foliage necessary for their survival. One can see all of the stages of creation at work, from the egg to caterpillar to the chrysalis to the winged mosaic that is the butterfly. Highly cool.
The butterfly vivarium is a wonderful place, though I think the thing that I most enjoyed was Sweetbriar's Indoor Rainforest. Here, I strolled through a tropical environment, meeting a variety of animals: boa constrictor, parrots, macaws, iguana, tarantula, a working honeybee hive, an ant farm, and, perhaps the strangest creature that I've ever seen, the walking stick.
I was very happy to spend my afternoon at the Sweetbriar Nature Center. Not only is it an interesting place to explore, I also find their efforts toward the conservation of the earth's critical habitats applaudable.
it stands firm in the heavens.
Your faithfulness continues through all generations;
you established the earth, and it endures."
