Three of the four tiger wing mimic butterflies from this week's shipment: Heliconius ismenius (Ismenius Longwing), Tithorea harmonia (Harmonia Tigerwing), and Lycorea cleobaea (Large Tiger).[/caption]

This week we are delighted to find four species of tiger wing mimics within our pupae shipment from El Salvador. These orange and black butterflies - Heliconius hecale (Tiger Longwing), Heliconius ismenius (Ismenius Longwing), Lycorea cleobaea (Large Tiger), and Tithorea harmonia (Harmonia Tigerwing) – have evolved to deceive predators by imitating the appearance of unpalatable or poisonous butterfly species.

Want to learn about how butterfly mimicry was discovered? Then check out the IMAX movie "Amazon Adventures 3D," now playing. Afterwards visit our Tropical Butterfly House and see if you can identify these fascinating species.

"Fresh Sheet" is our weekly shipment report of pupae on display in the emerging window. Visit Pacific Science Center's Tropical Butterfly House and meet our newest residents.

These butterflies typically arrive as pupae on the Thursday or Friday before the Fresh Sheet is published. Some of these butterflies will start emerging the day they arrive or the next day, but other species may take a full week before they reach adulthood. After emerging, they may live for a week or even a few months! While we love sharing a variety of species with our guests, we cannot guarantee that any specific species will be flying on the day that you visit Pacific Science Center.

If you are interested in photographing a specific butterfly and would like to be updated about when it is flying in the Tropical Butterfly House, please email Butterflies@pacsci.org with details and your contact information.

This week we are featuring the beautiful Adelpha fessonia (Mexican Sister) from our Costa Rica pupae shipment. Butterflies of the genus Adelpha are known as the "sisters" because of the white markings on their wings. Some think this pattern resembles a nun's habit. What do you think?

In the wild, Adelpha fessonia can be found from Panama to Mexico and even in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. However, you can see this and many other species now in our Tropical Butterfly House. Come visit us soon!

"Fresh Sheet" is our weekly shipment report of pupae on display in the emerging window. Visit Pacific Science Center's Tropical Butterfly House and meet our newest residents.

These butterflies typically arrive as pupae on the Thursday or Friday before the Fresh Sheet is published. Some of these butterflies will start emerging the day they arrive or the next day, but other species may take a full week before they reach adulthood. After emerging, they may live for a week or even a few months! While we love sharing a variety of species with our guests, we cannot guarantee that any specific species will be flying on the day that you visit Pacific Science Center.

If you are interested in photographing a specific butterfly and would like to be updated about when it is flying in the Tropical Butterfly House, please email Butterflies@pacsci.org with details and your contact information.

Lake Washington Watershed Internship Program

Pacific Science Center has become famous over the past 55+ years for teaching young students about science. We offer many programs for Preschool through high school. And for high school students we offer some outstanding programs that not only teach science, but also how to communicate with others, how to build confidence in speaking before groups, and how to teach the things the students learn. And there's no better example of that than a program we offer at Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center in Bellevue and at the UW Bothell campus. In this quick PacSci Podcast, learn more about the Lake Washington Watershed Internship Program.

[caption id="attachment_24275" align="aligncenter" width="1920"]Butterfly Guides at Pacific Science Center Butterfly Guides at Pacific Science Center's Tropical Butterfly House[/caption]

Pacific Science Center has many butterfly species - upward of 100 different species fly in our Tropical Butterfly House over a year. In addition to listing them in each week's Fresh Sheet, we provide a picture guide that features the most common species - the ones a guest would be most likely to see and identify during a visit. You can find this guide, in English and en Española, and now in a large print format (currently only in English). We ask you to enjoy your guide while visiting but when you are finished, please leave it for future guests. Butterflies that are not identified on the printed guides can be found in a directory accessed from the Science Interpreter stationed at the exit door inside the butterfly house.

In addition, our butterfly identification guides are available online as well.

Whether you prepare ahead or just come to experience the garden, please visit us soon!

"Fresh Sheet" is our weekly shipment report of pupae on display in the emerging window. Visit Pacific Science Center's Tropical Butterfly House and meet our newest residents.

These butterflies typically arrive as pupae on the Thursday or Friday before the Fresh Sheet is published. Some of these butterflies will start emerging the day they arrive or the next day, but other species may take a full week before they reach adulthood. After emerging, they may live for a week or even a few months! While we love sharing a variety of species with our guests, we cannot guarantee that any specific species will be flying on the day that you visit Pacific Science Center.

If you are interested in photographing a specific butterfly and would like to be updated about when it is flying in the Tropical Butterfly House, please email Butterflies@pacsci.org with details and your contact information.

Pacific Science Center is joining in on Teacher Appreciation Day by offering a whole month of events and special deals for teachers. Every weekday, the Science Center hosts groups of eager students from around the state as they partake in labs, planetarium shows and view the latest IMAX documentaries. This May, we thank teachers for inspiring these students and igniting their curiosity.

On May 12 and 13, teachers can visit the Science Center for FREE to see our exhibits and an IMAX documentary by presenting their valid education credentials. The Science Center is also giving teachers two free General Admission + IMAX documentary passes valid through the summer when they bring their students on a field trip in May.

As a thank you to our dedicated, local teachers, the Science Center invited Emmerson Elementary on a field trip. Their entire fourth and fifth grade class will be exploring our hands-on exhibits and watching the new IMAX documentary, Pandas 3D. Pandas 3D follows the story of an adventurous panda cub as she learns to "go wild" in order to save her endangered species.

The Science Center believes in enabling access for all, and is proud to offer Emmerson Elementary assistance with their visit. All of our field trip packages are eligible for scholarships based on school's Title 1 standing. Call (206) 443-2925 to learn more about our scholarship opportunities and see if your school qualifies.

Join the Science Center, the National Education Association and the National PTA in the Thank a Teacher Campaign by sharing a story on Teacher Appreciation Day. Be sure to tag the Science Center and use the hashtag #ThankATeacher!
