When the Navarre Chamber of Commerce created a Nature Walk at Navarre Park, Jack and Fonda Wetherell persuaded the Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioners to add a butterfly house.

With the help of the Chamber, Santa Rosa Clean Community System, Inc., UF/IFAS Cooperative Extension, garden clubs, businesses and community volunteers, the Panhandle Butterfly House became a reality. It first opened on Memorial Day, 1997.
