More than 30 native North American butterfly species and an array of plants take up residence every summer at the Natural History Museum‘s living habitat, the Butterfly Pavilion. Wander through a unique changing ecosystem, witness free-flying creatures interacting with plant life, and emerge with a better understanding of the environment needed for the survival of these spectacular animals.

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 8.17.07 PM

The Butterfly Pavilion showcases hundreds of butterflies and the plants that surround them, an interaction that has been refined over the course of millions of years. See up close how butterflies use their tubular mouthparts to obtain nectar and witness caterpillars feed on leaves and go through the process of their transformation into adults. Various butterflies are present at different points during the season and the plants will grow and change. This means that each visit to the Butterfly Pavilion throughout the summer can be a different experience!

British Polo Day

May 25, 2015 — Leave a comment

On the heels of its success last year, British Polo Day – as the only international polo network of its kind – British presented by Land Rover and leading travel specialist Abercrombie & Kent, returns to the USA to ‘swing their mallets’ for British luxury heritage. Hosted by the President of the Will Rogers Polo Club, Andrew Bossom; Lord Frederick Windsor; and his wife, actress and writer Sophie Winkleman, guests and VIPs will be treated to a day of fast-paced polo. As part of an ongoing commitment to philanthropy, BPD USA is supporting local Los Angeles charity, Homeboy Industries alongside The UK Stem Cell Foundation.

Founded in 2009 by Edward Olver and his friend Tom Hudson, Polo Day Global Series has grown ​to encapsulate a network of 10 annual events, spanning the globe from Abu Dhabi to Australia, Mexico to Morocco (which Sir Richard Branson was recently involved with). With last year’s inaugural British Polo Day USA seeing the likes of The Duke of Argyll, David Walton, Elon Musk, Talulah Riley and Cassian Elwes come together to raise impressive funds for charity, this year’s event is set to raise the bar ever-higher. Nakoa Decoite, ‘big wave’ surfer, polo player and Royal Salute Ambassador will be among those celebrating the fundraising event of the season.
