Come visit our new 12 x 24' butterfly house filled with native butterflies. This new Butterfly house offers visitors a total immersion experience for the young and old as it introduces visitors to the wonders of metamorphosis. 


This seasonal exhibit showcases several beautifully colored butterflies sipping nectar and taking flight, offering guests the opportunity to better understand and appreciate their life cycle and importance to the ecosystem. Inside the exhibit you will be welcome to chat with staff or volunteers, ask questions, or simply relax and enjoy the space while butterflies flit and fly about. See if a butterfly will land on your nectar stick or just watch them fly around you as they move between nectar plants. Observe butterfly chrysalis in the chrysalis box. Maybe you will be lucky enough to see a butterfly emerge!

Visitors are encouraged to show off pictures of their visit on social media using the #TNCButterfly.

Open Wednesday through Sunday 11:00 am to 4:00 pm weather permitting. Please call ahead for availability during inclement weather. The Butterfly House will close in October (closing date is weather dependent).
