A Unique Butterfly Experience

When we are open, come enjoy a unique experience with native Florida butterflies close up as they feed on native and Florida-Friendly plants. Witness hungry caterpillars munching on their favorite food. Peek under a leaf to observe pin-sized eggs or watch a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis. Learn more about creating your own butterfly garden.

The Panhandle Butterfly House is an educational and interactive exhibit. It fosters a better understanding of butterflies and increases awareness of the natural habitat in which butterflies thrive. Promote and Protect the Pollinators!

Admission is by donation.
