Butterfly Encounter

The year’s most popular exhibit is back for its 7th 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. Nectar sticks will be provided, but please feel free to BYOS (Bring your own Stick). You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase nectar and host plants to start your own butterfly garden or supplement your existing garden. 

THE DETAILS

>> Included with general admission and free to CNC Members. Purchase admission tickets in advance to secure a date and time for your visit. Members may also make advanced reservations.

>> Spots are timed and limited, however, we may be able to accommodate walk-ups based on daily visitation.

>> To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for our visitors, we are drastically reducing the capacity of our outdoor Butterfly Encounter tent to ensure space for social distancing. 

>> Center-wide policies and procedures have been implemented to offer the best experience possible. They can be viewed on the Plan Your Visit page.

>> During inclement weather (including rain, excessive wind, and/or thunder) the encounter may close temporarily for safety reasons.
