Visitors to the Farm can view native butterfly species in a hands-on environment. Guests can observe the phases of a butterfly’s life cycle, examine the insect’s anatomical features and identify specific host plants for larvae.

Family Program

Walk into a local butterfly habitat and be surrounded by our beautiful flying friends and their favorite plants. See different species up close and personal and one may even take a rest on your head. Come learn more about these beneficial insects and how you can attract them to your own backyard!
