In its 11th year, the annual Butterfly Show at Carleton University is well underway with a few hidden gems that many are eager to observe.
Ottawa residents have through Thanksgiving Monday to check out this free event that draws thousands of people each year. There are over 40 species of butterflies from South America and Asia fluttering about the campus greenhouse.
Guests are sure to learn a few fun facts about butterflies on their visit, like about the Morphinae butterfly, which is said to have hearing capabilities, according to research from Carleton's biology professor, Jayne Yak.

“I want people to have a good time, get educated, you know? To read about the butterflies and then experience them inside the greenhouse,” said greenhouse manager Edward Bruggink.
Bruggink started the show in 1999 and is the backbone behind it, with some financial support from his colleagues.
