Butterflies, cold forests in the sight of animals ~ Seoul forest in midwinter
Seongdong-gu, Seoul, Korea
Winter cannot be crouched like a pupa in the room. Children's winter vacation has also started, and it is time for a full-fledged play program. When the cold wind blows, it goes to Seoul Forest. The Seoul Forest, which stands for the ecological forest in the city center, is not only the possession of gorgeous green and foliage. When you arrive through the cold, you will encounter a gentle and lively sight. In Seoul Forest, you can meet colorful butterflies, novel insects, and animals even in the middle of winter.
“Then, you can still see butterflies in winter.”
The conversation between the mother and the child is interesting. Butterfly watching in the cold season is a strange reversal. There's another fun thing about smelting or mullet fishing through the ice.
In Seoul Forest, the space where you can see butterflies is an insect botanical garden. Butterflies flying in the warm season of the butterfly garden move their nests to the interior of the 2nd floor of the Insect Botanical Garden. When you enter the Butterfly Eco Museum, which is open for free, you can meet the wings of swallowtail butterflies, wild swallowtail butterflies, and yellow butterflies. Butterflies become somewhat sluggish when the weather gets cold. Between 11 am and 2 pm during the day, a good sunshine time is when the butterfly is most active.
If the biological common sense that was usually told to the child is reproduced as it is in front of the eyes, understanding grows in one word. At the Butterfly Ecology Center, various events are held for Christmas lovers, such as flying butterflies and giving a butterfly sample event.
After walking out of the Insect Botanical Garden, we walk to the promenade with flower deer. Seoul Forest provides outdoor spaces where you can meet cute animals even in winter. In the 'House of Small Animals' next to the observation deck, you can see the cute and busy appearance of the guinea pigs. The experience of feeding deer directly from the deer cage is also fresh. There is a time to buy food at the field and feed the deer directly in the snow field. You will experience the fact that Seoul Forest is an ecological space where wild animals such as deer, elk and squirrel play. The experience of feeding deer with winter butterflies is an unforgettable memory for children.
First of all, it is necessary to recall the colorful modifiers attached to Seoul Forest.
“If you have Central Park in New York and Hyde Park in London, there is Seoul Forest in Seoul.”
Even near the place of life on a winter day, these informative and interesting experiences await. Seoul Forest is easily accessible by subway. After the Seoul Forest Station of the Bundang Line, it became possible to connect immediately without having to stay in the cold for a long time.
