For 2014, the Butterfly House will be open July 7 - August 29 daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with knowledgeable volunteers on hand from 10 a.m. to noon Monday-Saturday and noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday. Exploration will bring discoveries about the various species of butterflies and plants making each experience a personal connection with nature.
Species such as painted lady, red admiral, monarch, giant swallowtail, black swallowtail, spicebush swallowtail, tiger swallowtail, luna moth, Cecropia moth, Polyphemus moth and pipevine swallowtail are featured.
