Butterfly Haven

Butterfly Haven

Guests will experience the beauty of the seasonal BUTTERFLY HAVEN, a 14′ wide x 10′ tall x 14′ long butterfly enclosure located alongside the Virginia Garden just outside the Wason Education Center.

The exciting new exhibit will engage guests of all ages as they immerse themselves in a world of butterflies and plants!

The house will support the Museum’s conservation efforts to preserve pollinating species such as the Monarch Butterfly. The initiative also supports education and awareness for the challenged annual Monarch butterfly migration due to deforestation in Mexico, extreme climate fluctuations in North America, and the growth of herbicide-based agriculture destroying crucial milkweed flora in the Midwest.
