Steve Fratello’s Butterfly Collection in Armonk

Steve Fratello came to The Bristal at Armonk, along with his amazing collection of rain forest butterflies. He had well over a dozen shadowboxes, each with multiple specimens, many of which he collected himself. He has been all over the world and led scientific expeditions for the Smithsonian and Field Museums. His presentation was so interesting, and was laced with personal stories of his travels. Residents truly learned a lot about all the different species of beautiful butterflies. We look forward to having Steve Fratello back someday to hear about some of his new travels and see some of his new butterfly collection.
