Butterflies Alive! App

SBMNH’s New App Allows Visitors to Augment Real-Life Experience


“Our goal with Butterflies Alive! is to connect visitors to nature and science,” said Luke Swetland, S.B. Museum of Natural History president. That effort just got easier with the museum’s new app, which allows visitors to augment their real-life experience with information about the little flyers flitting about and alighting on your person. “The app includes a butterfly identification guide with photographs of live butterflies from the exhibit taken by museum visitors, members, volunteers, docents, and staff,” Swetland explained. The Butterflies Alive! mobile app is available for iOS operating systems and can be downloaded for free at bit.ly/1naV7SB. The exhibit runs through September 7. For more information, call 682-4711 or visit sbnature.org.
