Butterfly Forest

A family favorite, Butterfly Forest enchants visitors of all ages while showcasing the delicate life cycle of some of nature’s most important pollinators and their favorite aromatic blooms.

You’ll stroll along a winding forest path over a bridge, past ponds and through a tunnel to discover beautiful butterflies taking flight, experiencing these delicate winged creatures’ natural behaviors as they flutter, eat and rest inside the glasshouse. You'll get up-close views of dozens of different butterfly species surrounded by the plants that provide them with nectar, see live metamorphoses as butterflies transform and emerge from their chrysalises, and delight in the butterflies' diverse array of vivid colors, shapes, sizes, patterns and motions. See how many species you can identify as you explore the garden — if you take your time and move slowly, one of these beauties might even land on your shoulder!
