Valentines dinner in support of local nature preservation

January 4, 2018 by  

A special Valentine’s Day Dinner and Stroll has been organized by the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory in support of the region’s spruce bog.

Hosted by the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory, this unique evening includes a romantic stroll through the greenhouse’s tropical gardens featuring over 2,000 free-flying butterflies. After they have enjoyed this brush with nature, diners can relax and enjoy themselves while the evening’s staff serves up a gourmet four-course dinner.

The event has been organized by the Butterfly Conservatory in support of the Kossuth Bog. The Conservatory is located on a portion of the bog, which has been identified as an environmentally sensitive area, and one of the last spruce bogs situated in the region of Waterloo.

Brochures are often provided during evenings like this, detailing the important role that bogs play in moderating the flow of water and the home they provide for birds, insects and reptiles, particularly in areas where conservation is important.

The dinner will be held on Wednesday, February 14, at the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory located at 2500 Kossuth Road from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM. Tickets can be reserved online at a cost of $68 plus HST per person. Tickets include admission to the Conservatory, the four-course dinner and gratuities.
