Come Out of Your Cocoon

While we're busy watching reruns on cable, a whole other world of butterfly survivalism is going on in our backyards. Take, for instance, certain types of butterflies that live by feeding ants with secretions and, in turn, receiving protection during the larval stage. Or consider migrating species that navigate using the earth's magnetic field or even by following man-made roads. Intrigued? Learn more at the Butterfly House Discovery Tour, 11 a.m. Saturday at Texas Discovery Gardens, 3601 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. The tour is included with admission price of $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $3 for children ages 3 to 11. Call 214-428-7476 or visit
Sat., Sept. 3, 11 a.m.-noon; Sat., Nov. 5, 11 a.m.-noon; Sat., Dec. 3, 11 a.m.-noon, 2011
