Green Animals Topiary Garden will be buzzing this summer when David Rogers’ Big Bugstakes over!
Even the famous green giraffe will be looking up at some of these gargantuan visitors!
Showcasing pollinators and other bugs on a massive scale, the David Rogers’ Big Bugs exhibition includes a 10-foot-tall Daddy Long Legs weighing 600 pounds, an 18-foot-long Praying Mantis weighing 1,200 pounds, a 10-foot-long Damselfly and an array of other massive creatures – nine total – placed in various locations around Green Animals. There will also be a colossal butterfly with a 5-foot wingspan in The Breakers Welcome Center.
Admission to David Rogers’ Big Bugs is included with the Preservation Society’s Stroll the Gardens & Grounds ticket, which includes two other properties and allows visitors to picnic on the grounds. Stroll the Gardens & Grounds tickets are $18 per adult and $8 per youth (ages 6-17). Go to www.NewportMansions.org for more information and to purchase tickets.
