Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory Gift Experiences — Leafcutter Ant Exhibit

One of the main attractions for Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory Annual Pass Members is to see the highly ant-icipated leafcutter ant nest! In this exciting exhibit, you can learn about these natural farmers, including their hidden underground fungus gardens. Complete with interconnected chambers, the nest is filled with thousands of leafcutter ants, each with various skills and roles to play within the colony.

Behaving as a unit and working cooperatively in a complex society, the queen ant and her loyal workers have been busy all year cultivating their garden and developing their colony. Watch as they cut and carry the leaves, and march along their foraging trails to tend to their fungus gardens. Kids who love insects will think it’s brilli-ant!
