Butterfly Encounter

June 3 – August 11 | Open daily until 4:30PM

The year’s most popular exhibit is back for its 11th summer. Get up close and personal with hundreds of native butterflies surrounded by colorful nectar plants. Photo opportunities abound, be sure to bring your camera. You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase nectar and host plants to start your own butterfly garden or supplement your existing garden.
